Trash and Recycling


  • City of Manassas trash and recycling services this week will run to a regular schedule. 
  • Please be advised that our next HHW and electronics drop-off day will be on Saturday, July 11 at the Manassas Transfer Station from 8 am – 12 noon.
  • The City has been contacted by our Trash & Recycling contractor letting us know that they have a COVID-19 outbreak among their staff with a large percentage testing positive and therefore, having to be off work. We are sending our thoughts and prayers for those affected by this awful virus. However, American has reassured us that all appropriate steps have been taken to deep clean their facilities and ensure that the remaining staff are following all safety protocols. American has also assured us that the City of Manassas is a priority for their company. We will need to remind our public to practice patience as this virus is still active in our community and indeed, in our world.

Five Things to Remember About Trash and Recycling

  • Always use City containers when setting out your trash and recycling. Do not set out loose trash or plastic bags.
  • Only recycle plastic containers #1, 2 and 5, metal cans, cardboard, paper, and glass. Make sure all recycling is empty, clean and dry.
  • Call ahead on (703) 257-8252 to schedule collections for large items that do not fit in your container, TVs, computer monitors, air conditioners and other appliances. Not all items can be collected curbside.
  • Set out your yard waste in brown paper yard waste bags. Bundle and tie loose branches. No compost, soil, sand or stone will be collected.
  • Always pull your container back from the curb following collections. Store containers at the side or in back of your home, or use a screened enclosure for storage.

All residents and property owners are responsible for making sure that they follow City guidelines for trash and recycling collection. Do your part to help keep Manassas safe, clean and beautiful.
