Due to COVID-19 and in an effort to follow CDC guidelines, staff is currently working on rotational schedules to help ensure social distancing.  This may cause some delays in normal collection times.  Please continue to follow all town ordinances regarding curbside collection to include placing trash in approved containers with the lid tightly closed. 

The Town of Herndon has joined Fairfax County’s program to recover and recycle glass.  Glass is no longer included as part of the town’s single stream recycling process Glass should not be placed in your curbside pick-up recycling containers.

Herndon and Fairfax County have established a glass only recycling drop off container, which is located at the entrance to the Herndon Public Works Shops at 1479 Sterling Road. Residents are encouraged to bring their glass to the town’s “Purple Dumpster” drop off container, reuse glass containers or if not possible, glass should be placed in the trash for disposal.
