Plastic bags for yard debris collection are no longer accepted.
You might ask if certain types of plastic biodegradable and compostable bags are accepted and we wanted to clarify to prevent any further confusion. Unfortunately the answer is NO. Yard debris in any type of plastic bags is not acceptable, regardless if the plastic bag is recyclable or not. All yard debris must be placed in PAPER bags or a personal reusable container clearly marked yard debris. For additional information, please visit the Fairfax County website at
