After more than 20 years of business-as-usual, changes are underway to the Town of Herndon’s trash and recycling collection schedule.
Beginning on August 5, recycling collection days will change for all residents, while trash collection days will change for some residents.
The changes are “needed to increase collection efficiency, balance routes, consolidate collection areas, and allow for existing and future development,” according to the town’s website.
No changes to the level of service offered by the town’s curbside collection program are proposed.
All recycling days will change to either Monday or Tuesday. Trash collections days will be on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
Residents can visit the town’s website to see their new schedule. All containers must be at the curb by no later than 6 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.

As we reported last week, two new Town of Herndon council members are exploring ways to beef up the town’s affordable housing policies for new development.
With several new major developments already approved by the town and more than 600 units in the pipeline, no units are set aside as affordable or workforce housing.
Town officials are beginning preliminary conversations to explore how and if the town should beef up its affordable housing policies.
Council members Cesar del Aguila and Pradip Dhakal say that one of the most lucrative options is for the town to seek state-enabling legislative that would gave it the statutory authority to administer an affordable housing program similar to the county’s process.
Others, however, caution that the administrative burden is far too hefty for the town to shoulder, especially since town officials already maintain the town’s existing affordable housing stock.
What policy instruments do you think the town should explore? Let us know in the poll below.
