Important updates to your trash services
The Association sponsors trash service for subdivisions who have successfully completed the trash petition/ballot process.
Association-sponsored trash is included in the assessment fee of those street/subdivisions listed in the Trash Schedule. Recycle days are also included in this document. The trash provider is Charlie & Son, and can be reached at 703-670-9652. See Charlie and Son rules and regulations for more specific information.
If your subdivision does not have Association-sponsored trash service, please contact a local vendor to procure trash service for your property.
Pick up Time
Please make sure that your trash and recyclables are out on the curb the night before (after sundown) or by 5:00 am on trash pick up day.
Yard Waste Pick Up Services
Charlie and Son will pick up a maximum of 8 bags of yard waste per service day. Please remember the following rules when leaving yard waste out:
All trash, grass, leaves and flower bushes must be bagged or bagged and placed in a covered trash can and then placed on a curb. Bushes or limbs up to 3 inches in diameter, are to be tied up into 3-4 ft. lengths. Brush with thorns must be neatly tied up or cut up in 3-4 foot lengths and put in a trash can not to exceed the height of the trash can.
Please refer to Charlie and Son rules and regulations for more details.
Bulk Pick Up Services
Charlie & Son has resumed bulk item pickup in a limited capacity as of July 1, 2020. All bulk item pickups MUST be scheduled in advance and meet the appropriate requirements. Bulk item pickups will be limited to 2 items per pickup and must be scheduled in advance. Please do not leave items in your yard without scheduling.
You may call Charlie and Son at 703-670-9652 to schedule a bulk pickup in advance. No bulk pickups will be done without being scheduled. Please reference the LRPRA trash alert for details.
Please remember that leaving bulk items, household items, and excessive amounts of trash in common areas around Lake Ridge is considered illegal dumping and fines will be issued. If you do not have a bulk item pickup scheduled by the trash service, the items should be left within your home until you have set up a date for the bulk pickup. If you see a resident violating these rules, you may contact LRPRA and your information will be kept in strict confidence. Please help LRPRA continue to be a safe and clean environment for its residents.
Holidays & Closings
Charlie & Son will be closed on Independence Day (July 4), Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Trash pickup, as well as recycle pickup, will be made on your next scheduled trash collection day after the holiday.
Inclement Weather Policy
Charlie & Son will make a determination if they are able to pick up trash and recycling during inclement weather. If your trash is not picked up on its regular trash day, it will be picked up on the next scheduled trash day.
If your recycling is not picked up, it will be picked up on the next scheduled recycling day.
