The Town of Haymarket provides trash and recycling removal for its residents and are currently under contract with AAA Recycling & Trash Removal a Division of Republic Services, Inc. Trash will be picked up on Mondays & Thursdays with recycling pick-up on Thursday.  Please make sure that trash and recycling are set out on the night before your scheduled pick-up.


Toters and Bins
All trash must be placed in an AAA wheeled trash cart, a standard trash can or tied plastic bags.  AAA offers upon request to the Town of Haymarket, a 96-gallon wheeled trash cart, 64 gallon wheeled recycling carts and 20 gallon recycling bin.  Please remember, the resident is responsible for the maintenance and cleaning of the wheeled trash cart.  There will be a fee for any wheeled toter in need of repair or replacement due to negligence or misuse.  Trash carts, recycling bins and Recycle Bank carts remain the property of AAA Recycling and Trash Removal Services and are provided to our customers for the duration of service. AAA is not responsible for personal trash cans and lids or containers that are packed too tightly.

Pickup Items and Setout Requirements
We attempt to maintain the same scheduled service days unless otherwise noted (See Cancellations and Delays).  It is difficult to duplicate pickup times due to uncontrollable circumstances that we may encounter day to day.  To help ensure pickup, please have your trash and recycling staged and ready for pickup by 5:00 a. m. on collection day or the night before.                                           

AAA Will Not Pick Up:
Flammable products and liquids, gasoline, oil, paint cans, tires, animal carcasses, manure, tree stumps, dirt, stone, rock, brick, lead, acid/wet cell batteries, railroad ties, toxic materials, bio-hazardous material’s or waste,  propane/oxygen/helium tanks, items containing gas such as freon, explosives, live ammunition or weapons, large amounts of animal waste, oversized brush, (longer than four feet in length or six inches in diameter), bags weighing more than 50 pounds or any items that cannot be safely loaded by our crews for removal or any items that may damage our hauling equipment. Construction debris is considered a special pick-up, listed under Special Pick-Up.  AAA Recycling and Trash Removal Services will not be responsible for any items, large or small left within 10 feet of curb line. 

Safety Considerations
Tying lids to trash container may endanger our employees.  Sharp objects, such as needles, razor blades, and knives, should be placed inside of durable plastic bottles, sealed with tape, placed in the trash and marked accordingly.  Large pieces of glass should be duct taped along the edges with a large X taped in the center from corner to corner, to reduce the risk of injuries.Since ashes remain hot for several days, store them in a metal container outside of your house for a week prior to putting them out for pickup.   Do not store valuable or important items in plastic trash bags.  It is too easy for you to mix up the trash.  Please use common sense in leaving items near your trash can on collection days.  Our crews are trained to do a thorough job.  Therefore, anything left within 10 feet of collection area or curb line may be collected as trash.  Display your address prominently at your service location.  This not only aids our collection crews, but emergency vehicles as well.

Municipal Solid Waste (Household Trash) & Special Pick-up
Our collection crews will collect all the household trash that is generated weekly by our customers and placed at the curb twice a week and in some areas once a week.   For all other household items, such as, cleanout, appliances, furniture, carpet, construction material, and other large or bulky miscellaneous items require special attention.  Please call our office or visit our website in advance, to schedule your pickup of these items.  There is a minimum charge of $50.00 for special pick-ups.

AAA provides curbside single stream recycling collection for all plastic #1-7, cans, glass bottles and jars, and mixed paper once per week.  Mixed Paper Includes:  Junk Mail, Magazines, catalogs, newspapers, phone books, cereal and cracker boxes, wax coated paper (milk cartons),  and flattened cardboard.  AAA would prefer all cardboard be flatten down to 3ft x 3 ft in size or smaller.  Items not acceptable for curbside recycling: Light bulbs, ceramic dishes, cookware, metal coat hangers, soiled pizza boxes, styrofoam, packing materials, plastic bags, aluminum foil or foil pie pans. Please visit your county’s website for more details.

Yard Waste Collection
All yard waste to be collected must be prepared accordingly and placed to the curb for collection.  Town of Haymarket residents may place yard waste out year-round with the trash.  Brush and limbs must be cut into 4-foot lengths, bundled with rope or twine and should not exceed 50 pounds. Tree limbs that are larger than 6 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length will not be collected.  All unbundled brush will be considered a special pick-up.  Please call our office or visit our website in advance to schedule your pickup of these items.  The minimum charge for a special pickup is $50.00. We provide a special collection for Christmas Trees up to 8 feet long on the first two Wednesdays in January.  Please remove all decorations and tinsel before placing at the curb.  Any trees not picked up by the second Wednesday in January will be collected with the trash starting the following week.

Weather Cancellations and Delays in Service
AAA Recycling and Trash Removal Services at certain times may need to cancel or delay collection services due to weather, disasters, acts of God, emergencies or uncontrollable circumstances.  Areas that remain unserviceable will be delayed until it is determined that our crews can operate safely and unobstructed.  When delays in service occur, our crews will run all accessible routes as normal and continue into the next day until the route is complete.  For up to date information concerning delays and cancellations, please call our Customer Service Center at 703-818-8222.   We will make every effort to provide service as conditions allow.  There will be no adjustment made to your bill for service cancellations or delays due to situation out of our control, such as: weather, unsafe road conditions, etc.
