If you do not live within an incorporated town or homeowners association providing refuse and recycling collection services, you must arrange for services directly with one of the private waste and recycling companies serving Loudoun County.

Private waste collection services vary from place to place and the best advice is to ask a Realtor, landlord, or neighbor about refuse and recycling collection in the community.
