Herndon Trash, Recycling Collection Changes Coming in August

Many of the collection days for trash and all of the ones for recycling in the Town of Herndon are set to change starting in August.

The changes are set to start the week of August 5. Recycling days will change to either Monday or Tuesday and some trash collection days will shift to Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

The types of services will not be affected.

The changes are meant to increase collection efficiency, balance routes, consolidate collection areas, and allow for existing and future development, according to the Town of Herndon.

Town Manager Bill Ashton told the Herndon Town Council at its public session last night (March 12) that public outreach is the first step of the process.

“We have a very comprehensive plan to do public outreach in this regard because it is changing how things have been done for about the past 25 years so that is always a difficult thing,” Ashton said.

Ashton said that Herdon residents can expect a letter in their mailboxes soon from the Department of Public Works outlining the changes.
