March 2020 Trash and Recycling Update: Bulk Item Pickup Suspended by ADS

Due to the growing concerns of the COVID-19 virus, we are temporarily suspending the collection of all bulk items.

Effective immediately, all residential curbside and enclosure bulk removal will be temporarily suspended until further notice. While we understand this may be an inconvenience, we feel it’s in the best interest of our employees and customers to limit any possibility of exposure to this virus. American Disposal Services will continue to perform all regularly scheduled household waste, recycling and yard debris services as normal.

We will continue to follow the recommendations of health authorities and the CDC, and are actively monitoring the ever-changing circumstances. We will update our website ( and Facebook page (American Disposal Services) accordingly with updated information on any delays in service and/or schedule changes. Our Customer Service Team is available to support you and can be reached Monday – Friday 8:00 am – 4:30 pm at 703-368-0500 or We appreciate your understanding, patience, and support during this time.
