Refuse Collection

The Town of Occoquan contracts with Bates Trucking for weekly trash and recycling service for our residents and businesses.  

Collection Information

Garbage and recycling is collected once per week on Wednesdays.  Refuse should be placed to the curb no earlier than 4 pm on Tuesday and no later than 5 am on Wednesday.  Please remove containers from the curb as quickly as possible after collection.  When placing refuse to the curb for collection, do not impede public right of ways including sidewalks and streets.

Trash and recycling should be concealed from public view when not placed out for collection. Please take care to ensure your refuse does not blow out of of containers and create a hazard.

Residents and business are asked not to place household refuse in public trash cans.  Please place your refuse to the curb on collection day and do not place your refuse in public trash cans on non-collection days.  There is a garbage dumpster located in the town's public lot and a recycling dumpster in the VDOT lot under the 123 bridge for public waste.  Please utilize these containers if you need to dispose of household waste before the normal collection day.

New or Replacement Containers

If you are a new resident or need a new trash or recycling container, please contact Town staff at (703) 491-1918 to schedule a container drop off. 

Schedule Changes

Any changes to the collection schedule will be included in the Town's monthly newsletter, which is delivered to every resident in town.
