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
www.patriotdisposalservices.com to schedule a special pick-up or to inquire
about what items you can leave on the curb.
Please see the message from Patriot below.

“Sincere apologies for the miscommunication on our end, but
we need to change collection days back to the original schedule
of TUESDAY’S and FRIDAY’S. Unfortunately there was mix up
on our side and we apologize for the inconvenience it may
TUESDAYS will remain recycling pickup days. I have
apologized to the board and we apologize to you the residents.
There will be no other shifts in schedule moving forward and
we thank you for your understanding.
If you have any questions at all, feel free to reach us directly at
This schedule will take effect immediately. There will be no
pickup for today but we will pick up trash and recycling
tomorrow and continue with that schedule moving forward.
Account Manager, Patriot Disposal”
We are committed to making sure our Woodstream residents receive the best possible services at all times. Recently we have needed to change our trash collecting company. Our new company, Patriot Disposal, is a locally owned and operated family business and has been in the Northern VA area since 2007.
There will be NO trash pick-up this Friday, February 1st, 2019. Residents are asked to refrain from putting any cans or bags at the curb on this day. Recycling will be picked as scheduled up on Wednesday, January 30th.
Patriot Disposal, our new trash-collecting company, will officially begin servicing our community on Tuesday, February 5th. After February 5th., our new schedule is as follows:
Trash pick up: Tuesday and Friday
Recycling pick-up: TUESDAY
Yard waste will be picked up March through December on Wednesdays.
Recycling will no longer be picked up on Wednesday. Since recycling and trash pick-up will now be collected on the same day, residents are asked to please separate the trash from the recycling on Tuesdays.
New recycling bins will be provided by the trash company. Please put your house number on these bins.
Patriot will be providing us more information in the coming days regarding acceptable items and contact numbers for bulk pick up and service issues.
As a reminder yard was collection has ended until March. Yard debris is collected March through the end of December every year.
Happy New Year!
The board was notified this morning that our trash provider Waste Management has sold our contract to another provider effective 1/1/19. We have been in contact with the new provider and have been fighting to get service for today 1/2. They informed us they should be in the neighborhood in the next 1 1/2 hours. During this transition there will more than likely be disruptions to our service. Please be patient as we try to restore service to an acceptable level.
The new provider said we should put Christmas Trees out with regular trash. Fairfax County code dictates Christmas Trees are accepted the first two weeks of January.
Yard waste collection has ended until March as per usual for the neighborhood.
The board has no faith in the service the new contractor will provide. We are actively searching for new contractors and are working with our lawyers to terminate our current contract. We currently have one bid and are waiting on the numbers from two others.
Please continue to monitor the HOA website. wooodstream.org for any updates.
