COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Out with the Old: Secure Your Trash - Please take extra care during this holiday season to ensure that your trash and recyclables are properly secured. We are in a season of high trash volume, and it is important that we keep trash and recycling from blowing into common areas or neighboring property. Make certain that containers are set on level ground when curbside and that lids can fully close. Any materials not in sealed containers should be secured so that they won’t blow away before collection. There should be no open bags or loose packing materials. Please break down cardboard boxes so that they are collapsed flat.

New to Brambleton? - Residents should contact Republic Service’s customer service at brambleton@republicservices.com to arrange for the delivery of new trash and recycling toters if none accompany your property. More information about recycling, trash services, and bulk pick-up can be found on our website. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Community Standards team at communitystandards@brambleton.org or 703-542-6263.

LCSO Holiday Safety Tips - As the holiday season approaches, the Sheriff’s Office is asking for your assistance. There is an increase in package larcenies from door steps. Planning ahead can help to limit thefts from occurring. Consider some of the alternative delivery methods below:
  • Use in store delivery and pick up at the store, request that your package be delivered to the Post Office, or if possible, have packages delivered to your place of work.
  • Utilize package delivery points such as Amazon Locker, UPS, or other similar service providers.
  • Track your package and have someone home the day of delivery, or
  • Request a friend to collect your package if you will not be at home.
Contact the Sheriff’s Office if you observe suspicious behavior, such as a vehicle following a delivery truck or a vehicle collecting boxes. Report emergencies to 911. To report non-urgent matters, use the online service at sheriff.loudoun.gov or the 24/7 non-emergency line at 703-777-1021.
