  • Northern Zone includes all homes on and north of Dare Road, including neighborhoods along Wolf Trap Road, Goodwin Neck Road, and homes in and near Marlbank, Edgehill, Queens Lake, Hubbard’s Lane, Skimino, and Lightfoot.  Collection weeks for the Northern Zone will be:

In order to ensure collection, bags must be at the front roadside by 7 a.m. on the Monday of your collection week. Pick up will be completed by the end of the week. The following rules apply:

  • Bags must not exceed 40 lbs. in weight
  • Only clear bags are collected and must not have drawstrings. Bags must be no thicker than one millimeter.
  • Bags containing other yard debris (sticks, etc.) and/or pet waste will not be accepted

York County participates in a regional de-bagging operation performed at the VPPSA Compost Facility. Please help us with this program by purchasing clear bags no thicker than one millimeter and without drawstrings.
