Loudoun County will be offering a temporary trash drop-off service on the next two Saturdays to Loudoun residents who were customers of Haulin’ Trash. The household waste-hauling company informed customers earlier this week that it would cease operations in northern Virginia effective December 1, 2022. As a result of the unexpected announcement, some customers—primarily in the eastern part of Loudoun County—have trash piling up outside their homes.
When and Where to Drop Off Trash
On Saturday, December 3, 2022, and again on Saturday, December 10, residents may drop off household and yard waste at Park View High School, located at 400 W. Laurel Avenue in Sterling. The drop-off site will be located in a parking lot adjacent to the school’s ballfields.
The drop-off site will be open on both Saturdays, 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
What is Accepted
The temporary drop-off site will accept regular household and yard waste. Bulk waste, such as furniture, electronics and other large items, will not be accepted. Commercial waste also will not be accepted.
Recyclable materials should continue to be dropped off at the existing Sterling Park Community Recycling Center, which is also located at Park View High School. Please note that trash is not accepted at recycling centers. More information about the county’s recycling centers is posted at loudoun.gov/recycle.
Any former customers of Haulin’ Trash who would like to drop off trash at the temporary site will be charged a fee of $7 for 10 bags of household and yard waste. Cash only will be accepted.
Residents may also choose to drop off waste and recyclables at the county’s landfill, located at 21101 Evergreen Mills Road in Leesburg. The landfill is open Monday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. More information about the county’s landfill services is posted at loudoun.gov/landfill.
Trash Service Providers
While Loudoun County is offering emergency relief for residents who are impacted by the abrupt closure of Haulin’ Trash, the county does not provide trash hauling services. Residents and homeowner associations are responsible for procuring curbside trash hauling services. Information about trash service providers is posted on the county’s website at loudoun.gov/trashserviceproviders.
