Springtime and spring cleaning typically go together. The Prince William County Solid Waste Division has several beneficial services for residents.

From the Yard: Residents can drop off yard waste, such as lawn clippings, tree limbs and leaves to designated areas, where it is processed into mulch, wood shavings or compost.
From the Garage: Residents may drop off lead-acid automotive batteries, household batteries and scrap metal pieces, along with used antifreeze, oil and filters in specially designated areas.
From the Home: Donating is a great way to get rid of “still usable” items. Visit “Recycling/Reuse” on the Solid Waste webpage, or try an internet search for “donation centers near me” to find organizations that are available to accept these items.
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW): HHW items are found in the yard, garage or home.  HHW includes items like insecticides, paints, fluorescent bulbs, aerosol cans, drain cleaners, gasoline and more. Take extra care to properly discard these items and help prevent them from harming septic systems, waterways and soils. Prince William County residents can dispose of these items at no extra cost on Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics Recycling Program days. Visit the Household Hazardous Waste page to learn more.

The Prince William County Solid Waste Division offers an environmentally appropriate space for almost everything. For more information, visit the A to Z Disposal Guide.
