Recycling Center Hours, Materials Change

Post Date:08/01/2017

The City of Fairfax Recycling Center at the Property Yard (3410 Pickett Road) now is open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, and will be closed on holidays observed by the city

These recent changes are the result of an increase in inappropriate materials dumped at the recycling center. This creates a hazardous environment for Recycling Center patrons, and costs the city thousands of dollars every month in staff time and resources. Dumping non-acceptable items at the center will result in investigation and, if appropriate, fines and prosecution.  

Check the city website for the Solid Waste Service Guide, which lists items accepted at the Recycling Center, or request a copy:, 703-385-7837. 

The Recycling Center does not accept household hazardous waste. Please take these items to Fairfax County Household Hazardous Waste facilities. The closest facility to the city for refuse, recycling, hazardous waste and electronics disposal, and more is the I-66 Transfer Station, 4618 West Ox Road; 703-324-5320.

The center has stopped accepting small household items for donation.
