Heat Advisory: Early Start Times and Delays for Collections

As the summer begins to heat up, so do the risks for the collection crews providing trash and recycling collections throughout the city. Crews perform between 5,000 and 10,500 collections every day, and the risk of heat-related illnesses such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion, or heat stroke are much higher for those working outdoors.

Please make sure that you set out your trash and recycling the night before your collection day as crews may start earlier to beat the heat. Please be advised that some collections may also be suspended or delayed if heat advisories are issued by the National Weather Service. 

Thank you for your patience.

Scheduling Glass Items for Collection


As a safety precaution, all glass that is scheduled for collection must be packed in cardboard, sealed closed with tape, and labeled “GLASS”.  Unpacked or loose glass will not be collected

Big Move or Clean-up? Call Refuse and Recycling!

Planning a big move or clean-up can be pretty stressful. When it comes to packing up – or cleaning out, many people forget to plan for trash removal. This can result in incidents of excess bulk waste at the curb that often contain household hazardous waste and electronics. Here are 4 easy ways to reduce stress and avoid additional charges for removal:
  1. Rent a Courtesy Truck
    The City offers working Street Department trucks for rental outside of working hours to help you dispose of large amounts of materials. The trucks cost $150.00 and all you need to do is load it up and we’ll do the rest. The trucks don’t take household hazardous waste like paint or electronics – but we do take a lot of other items. Call 703-257-8342 or visit our website for more information.
  2. Schedule curbside collection of your old televisions and computer monitors
    Call the Trashline on 703-257-8252 to schedule curbside collection of your old televisions and computer monitors. We collect scheduled items every Thursday.
  3. Schedule curbside collection of “bulk waste or large items”
    If it doesn’t fit into your trash container – you need to call the Trashline on 703-257-8252 to schedule curbside collection of your large item. Unscheduled items will not be collected and may result in additional charges for removal.
  4. Take your trash to the landfill at Dumfries Road
    City residents are permitted to take their trash to the Prince William County Landfill located at Dumfries Road. The City of Manassas is not part of Prince William County; therefore, City residents will pay $5.00 per vehicle per trip for the first 200 lbs., and $45.00 per ton for any amount over 200 lbs.

Call the Trashline on (703) 257-8252 during regular office hours for more information.
