Refuse and Recycling Tips: Don't Trash Liquids
Be sure to empty liquid from refuse and recyclable containers before placing them at the curb. This prevents liquid from spilling on workers and leaking onto the road from collection trucks.
Latex paint cans (dried out) — are accepted curbside for disposal — only if dried out.
Oil-based paint is hazardous waste — it is not accepted curbside, nor at any city facilities. Oil-based paint and other household hazardous materials must be taken to the Fairfax County Household Hazardous Waste disposal site. Visit the Fairfax County Disposal Center web page for information.
