Covid-19 Update 2 Yard Waste Suspended

Patriot Disposal is considered an essential service, and while delays may be possible, service will continue as scheduled with the following exceptions:

  • No bulk or special pick-up items may be placed out for pick-up.
  • Friday, April 3, 2020 is the last day to put out any yard waste with regular trash. After this date, DO NOT put yard waste outside until further notice.
  • Questions?  Contact Patriot Disposal us at (703) 257-7100 or contact them via email at

Residents can help provide Patriot Disposal workers safer working conditions by following these best practices.

1.    REDUCE THE WASTE YOU GENERATE During this unprecedented time, residents should be mindful of the quantity of waste they generate, so as not to overwhelm the collection system. For example, this is not the best time to clean out the garage/do spring cleaning.

2.    REDUCE YOUR YARD WASTEStart grass cycling, backyard composting, and limit generation of yard waste if possible.

3.    BAG ALL TRASH and REFUSE Bagged trash limits exposure to potentially harmful materials, such as used tissue that could spread viruses and bacteria.

4.    KEEP ALL RECYCLING CLEAN AND LOOSE When recycling is loose in the bin, not in bags, it is easier to process. Removing food and liquid residue from recyclables minimizes the spread of viruses and bacteria. Only place plastic bottles and jugs, paper, cardboard, cartons and metal cans in the bin.

5.    EMPTY ALL LIQUIDS – Liquids in bottles, cans, and other containers can carry viruses and bacteria and can splash onto collectors when trash and recyclables are emptied.

6.    WIPE/DISINFECT CART HANDLES AND LIDS – The two main touch points on a cart for collectors are the lid and the handles. By wiping those areas down with disinfectant or soapy water, you minimize the danger of shared contact areas.

Woodstream HOA Updates

  • Continue to practice social distancing at all times.  Residents and/or guests should not be congregating at the basketball court, Tot Lot, or any where else throughout the community.  Stay safe!
  • If you have recently moved-in or have any changes to your current email, please email us today at so we can update our records and send important updates to you.   

COVID-19 Update

It’s important we work together to ensure our Woodstream community is taking all the necessary precautions per the Fairfax County Health Department and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in order to keep ALL our residents safe.  

Effective immediately:

  • Please remember to practice social distancing!  It is highly recommended that parents do not allow their children and teenagers to go to the Tot Lot and basketball court until further notice. While fresh air is encouraged, having people congregate in these two locations is putting our entire community at risk, as these areas are not cleaned regularly. 
  • Patriot Disposal, our trash-collecting company, has informed us that as of Friday, March 20, 2020, there will be no bulk items pick-up (small furniture, grills, mattresses) or scheduled special items pick-up (toilets, construction debris) until further notice. IF YOU PLACED BULK ITEMS OUT FOR PICK-UP, PLEASE REMOVE THEM TODAY.

Please know that during this unprecedented time we want to do all we can to help stop the spread of COVID-19.  If possible, please remember to check on elderly neighbors or those who may have compromised immune systems. If you any questions or concerns email the Board at  Stay safe!

We look forward to celebrating with everyone! Thanks

New Recycling Day

As you know, Patriot Disposal recently began servicing our community for
trash and recycling pick-up. Patriot Disposal communicates with the Board on
a regular basis and its employees work hard to make sure our community is
clean and free of trash and clutter.
Unfortunately, with such a large route in Northern Virginia to service,
sometimes changes need to be made to pick-up days. We know that our
community has experienced this over the last few months on more than one
occasion and we apologize for the inconvenience. Please read the note from
Patriot’s President John Poague found here: PD HOA Day Change Notice – as a new
recycling pick-up day is beginning the week of May 13, 2019 th .

WHOA SERVICE DAYS (effective May 13, 2019)
Trash will be collected on Tuesday and Friday.
Recycling will be collected on Wednesday’s.
Yard Waste will be collected on Wednesday’s in season

Also, please remember that not all items can be placed at the curb for regular
trash pick-up. Items such as mattresses/box springs, bed frames and furniture
(disassembled) can be placed at the curb on regular trash days. A good rule
of thumb is that if it is not an electronic and of reasonable size, it can be
picked-up with the trash. Patriot just asks that you do not place multiple items
out on the same day. Everything else is considered a SPECIAL PICK-UP.
Please call Patriot Disposal at 703-257-7100 or check out their website at to schedule a special pick-up or to inquire
about what items you can leave on the curb.
