Refuse and yard waste services are provided to all residential customers in the Yorkshire Service Area. Customers can opt out of refuse and yard waste services by contacting Customer Service at (703) 335-7950. One trash tote and a recycling bin are provided free of charge to each residence. Residents may contact the service provider for one additional trash tote for a fee of $6 per month. The refuse receptacles are to remain at the property when vacated for the next customer's use. If a receptacle is lost, stolen or damaged, the customer should contact the refuse contractor to request and pay for any replacement receptacle(s).

A Prince William County Government ordinance requires County residents to separate yard waste from all other types of waste. All trash providers operating in the County are required to separately collect yard waste weekly from March 1 to December 31. Please click here for additional information.

Update February 2024

Effective with your February 2024 bill, your new monthly base rate for trash and recycling services will increase from $18.50 per month to $25.50 per month. The increase is primarily due to a new Prince William County landfill fee and increasing operating costs. Effective January 1, 2024, waste haulers and commercial users disposing of regular refuse will be charged $40/ton at the Prince William County Landfill. Please click here for additional information.
