Yard Waste Is Easy To Recycle; Just Watch Our New Video!Are you one
of the many Alexandrians recycling yard waste each week? Watch this video to learn more about the City's Yard Waste collection program. Remember, for regular
collection each week, simply place small amounts of waste such as grass clippings, dead plants or
brush, into rigid, reusable containers or paper yard waste bags at the curb
next to refuse containers. For larger items, such as branches or logs that are
too big or heavy to fit into a container, request a special pick up using

The Resource Recovery Division, part of the Department of Transportation and Environmental Services (T&ES), is committed to providing public services in a professional and courteous manner. It is our goal to provide services that protect the environment and respond to the needs of the community at the least possible cost. Accomplishing this goal requires a cooperative effort between Alexandria citizens, businesses, and City government.
In January 2012, Alexandria and Arlington entered into a new Waste Disposal and Service Agreement with Covanta Energy for processing the jurisdictions' solid waste. This contract was approved unanimously by both the City Council and County Board and established an initial term through 2019.
However, this new Agreement left open several decisions that need to be made for the continued use of the facility by the Jurisdictions. So, as part of the 2012 approval process the Council and Board directed staff to conduct a third-party economic analysis to evaluate the agreement, extension options and costs of waste disposal alternatives to support their decision-making process. The analysis is now complete and the issue at hand is whether or not the jurisdictions should extend the term of the agreement, and if so, in what time frame.
In brief, the jurisdictions can take over ownership of the Facility in 2025, or could elect to extend their site lease with Covanta to 2038, with the jurisdictional tip fee (the per ton waste disposal rate) dropping to $0 for the period from 2025 through 2038 and with the facility and site then returning to the jurisdictions in 2038.
