Tuesday, Feb 19: A winter storm is in the forecast for the region. Click here for info on snow removal in the Town of Herndon. Residents are asked to move cars OFF of streets prior to the storm, so plows can get through. Recyclables will not be collected Wednesday, Feb 20; they will be collected town-wide on Thursday, Feb 21. Liberal leave is in effect for town employees on Wednesday, Feb 20. Parks & Rec classes and programs before 3pm are cancelled.

Beginning in August many of the Town of Herndon’s trash collection days will change, and all recycling collection days will change. These changes will be the first in more than 20 years and are needed to increase collection efficiency, balance routes, consolidate collection areas, and allow for existing and future development.
