Yard Waste Collection Resumes on Tuesday, March 6th - Yard waste recycling collection occurs on Tuesdays. Yard waste should not be placed curbside on days other than Tuesdays.

The BCA office offers free Yard Waste stickers to distinctly mark designated yard debris containers. Residents that do not wish to use a dedicated container may use either brown paper bags or clear plastic bags. BCA's contracted waste hauler will not pick up yard debris in any other style of bag, including black plastic bags. Yard Waste consists of grass clippings, leaves, and branches in small bundles that are less than 5 ft long and no more than 40 lbs. The waste hauler does not accept sod, dirt, mulch, rocks, bricks, or other construction debris. Visit this page on our website for details regarding acceptable materials. For information about alternative waste disposal options, please visit this page on the Loudoun County website.
