If you live in Fairfax county, getting rid of your yard waste will be getting a little more difficult. Beginning April 19, Fairfax County no longer accepts yard debris–to include grass clippings and leaves–in plastic bags.
Many homeowners and renters living in northern Virginia and Fairfax County have backyards, while others live on properties with large outdoor spaces containing broad lawns, maybe some wooded areas, and plenty of room to play and relax.
While most of these residents have little problem with the periodic mowing, trimming, and subsequent yard waste removal, that’s usually because they have smaller properties, or they have landscaping firms take care of it for them.
But not everyone has “people for that” nor do they really need to. But when they do engage in a serious cleanup or landscaping maintenance, the bigger the space, the bigger the mess!
In other words, regardless of how large or how small your property, being a homeowner, tenant, or even a property manager means you often have yard waste you need to dispose of.
Spring Cleaning can Mean Outdoor Cleaning, Too!
If you’re feeling particularly ambitious this spring after more than a year being stuck inside more often than not, you might want to tackle more than just the house with a spring cleaning. In fact, your yards and other outdoor spaces may be screaming for a major cleanup.
We get it!
However, once you’ve completed your outdoor spring cleaning you may find that you now have a great deal of yard debris and waste. If you compost, you can probably reuse or recycle some of these materials. But what do you do if you have far more yard waste than you can manage yourself?
While you can certainly put some of it in your recycling bin, as we will explain farther along here, that may not be the best solution. And what do you do if you have more than you can put in there? While Virginia does not ban yard waste from landfills, many states do.
(By the way, the state of Virginia does ban asbestos, car batteries, liquid waste, medical waste, and motor oil.)
The good news is that your local Junk King Fairfax waste removal team is ready to provide you with efficient and affordable yard waste removal.
What can we take?
Pretty much everything and anything other than hazardous materials. If you have it sitting outside or in your yard, we can most likely haul it away for you. In fact, we have a long list of items we take, including:
- – Branches

So, you don’t waste your time making trips to a waste transfer station or a landfill when you can make a quick call to Junk King Fairfax. Let our professional team with our large truck do it all for you.
Green Waste Removal for Green Waste
At Junk King Fairfax we are quite serious about being a green junk removal operation. And we demonstrate this by our commitment to the goal of our company’s environmentally friendly mission, which is to recycle, reuse, and donate as much as possible
Junk King is the only nationally recognized junk removal company that regularly maintains a recycling rate of 60 percent or more of everything we haul away.
And believe it or not, this includes organic yard waste – or “green” waste.
Actually, when it comes to composting, a distinction is made between “green” items and “brown” items. The green materials are rich in nitrogen and, among other things, these include grass clippings and leaves. Brown materials provide much-needed carbon and are made up of branches and twigs.
Because it is all compostable and reusable, it can all be thought of as “green” waste, however. But there’s a problem when all this gets waste dumped into a landfill instead of composted or otherwise reused.
According to a post at Basmati.com,
“The dangers of tossing yard waste into the landfill can lead to negative effects one might not consider. As the Sierra Club points out, “it can generate methane gas and acidic leachate and, according to the EPA, can seep underground and into nearby buildings where it has the potential to explode.”
Old leaves, grass, and other clippings and trimmings can contribute to groundwater pollution and hinder waste incineration. In fact, seemingly harmless grass and leaves have an entire rap sheet of unfriendly ecological effects when put into landfills.
The good news is that Junk King Fairfax is trained and equipped to take care of proper disposal of yard waste for you. We can come out to your home and haul away any yard waste and debris that you need to get rid of and do so in a green, eco-friendly manner.
