Trash and Yard Waste
REMINDER: Please bag your yard waste and dispose of properly. Do not dispose of yard waste on common area, including wooded common areas.
We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and its impact on waste generation and collection to insure we are doing the right thing for the health and safety of our employees and the communities that we serve. We continue to see a significant increase in the volume of material that is being set out in our Residential sector as commercial businesses are curtailed/shuttered.
We are providing this email to clarify that we are continuing to collect yard waste in Loudoun County and will suspend that service only if approved by County officials. We apologize for the confusion we created via calls and emails last week indicating that we were suspending the service. Again, we are continuing to collect yard waste in Loudoun County. If we do reach a point that yard waste collecting is suspended if authorized by County officials we will provide as much notice as possible.
Please position trash and recycling toters with the silver lift-bar on the front facing the street and wheels/handle-side closer to the curb. The trucks from Republic Services are designed to lift the can and dump it without any physical human contact. During this time, the trucks have just a driver, so they must park the truck and reposition trashcans when the hinge is on the street side.
We are managing through a completely unique and very dynamic situation with COVID-19 and appreciate your consideration during this time.
Governor Northam Issues Statewide Stay at Home Order
RICHMOND—Governor Ralph Northam today issued a statewide Stay at Home order to protect the health and safety of Virginians and mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. The executive order takes effect immediately and will remain in place until June 10, 2020, unless amended or rescinded by a further executive order.
The order directs all Virginians to stay home except in extremely limited circumstances. Individuals may leave their residence for allowable travel, including to seek medical attention, work, care for family or household members, obtain goods and services like groceries, prescriptions, and others as outlined in Executive Order Fifty-Three, and engage in outdoor activity with strict social distancing requirements.
The executive order also directs all Virginia institutions of higher education to stop in-person classes and instruction. Private campgrounds must close for short-term stays, and beaches will be closed statewide except for fishing and exercise.
“We are in a public health crisis, and we need everyone to take this seriously and act responsibly,” said Governor Northam. “Our message to Virginians is clear: stay home. We know this virus spreads primarily through human-to-human contact, and that’s why it’s so important that people follow this order and practice social distancing. I’m deeply grateful to everyone for their cooperation during this unprecedented and difficult time.”
The full text of Executive Order Fifty-Five can be found here.
Last week, Governor Northam issued Executive Order Fifty-Three closing certain non-essential businesses, prohibiting public gatherings of more than 10 people, and directing all K-12 schools to remain closed for the rest of the academic year. A Frequently Asked Questions guide about Executive Order Fifty-Three can be found here.
