hedge trimming

Bush/Hedge Trimmings

Yard waste is defined as grass clippings, leaves, or bush/hedge trimmings resulting from normal maintenance of your yard. Please place your yard waste on the curb in brown paper yard waste bags or un-bagged in a personal container clearly marked 'yard waste' on both sides of the container.


Yard waste bagged in clear plastic bags will be collected, however we prefer the use of brown paper bags or personal container collection. Although plastic bags are currently accepted, they are not biodegradable and lead to issues with our machinery and at the compost facility. Customers in Loudoun, Fairfax and Prince William Counties are prohibited from using clear plastic bags for yard waste per county ordinance. Loudoun, Fairfax and Prince William County customers must use brown paper bags or a personal container for yard waste collection.

Patriot Disposal will also collect tree trimmings so long as it is cut into four-foot lengths, with each limb or piece of brush no larger than four inches in diameter, and tied in small bundles with rope or twine. Each bundle can be no larger than two feet in diameter
