- 2013 Spring Clean Up Schedule
Residents that receive City refuse collection services are eligible to receive Spring Clean-Up pick up each Saturday throughout April. Residents are encouraged to clear out household clutter and place unwanted bulky trash and metal items at the curb on your neighborhood collection date. The City is divided into four collection zones and each zone is assigned a specific Saturday. Metals should be separated from other collection items, as they will be picked up during separate collection.

Area 2 – Saturday, April 13
Area 3 – Saturday, April 20
Area 4 – Saturday, April 27

- Changes to Waste Water Billing and Commercial Refuse Invoicing
Beginning in Fall 2012, Virginia American Water ceased providing third party billing services. As a result, residential and commercial customers will now receive a separate quarterly waste water bill from Alexandria Renew Enterprises (formerly the Alexandria Sanitation Authority). For more information on the residential invoice change, visit the Alexandria Renew Frequently Asked Questions page. A letter was sent to commercial refuse customers informing them of these changes. For more information about the City of Alexandria invoicing for commercial refuse customers, view the City's Frequently Asked Questions, Notification Letter, or Sample Invoice.
