CSCA has a contract with American Disposal Services (ADS) for the collection of household trash and recycling materials. This service is part of your assessment fee. Trash collection is every Monday and Thursday with recycling collection on Thursdays only.Please make sure trash is placed in covered trashcans at the curb on the garage side of your home. (The homeowner is responsible for purchasing their own trashcans. Please call ADS for a recycling bin at (703) 368-0500. Materials recycled are glass (all colors), aluminum, plastics, and newspapers. All may be co-mingled in the container, with the exception of newspapers. Please bundle these separately and place the bundle on top or to the side of the container on collection day. ADS will also provide special pick-ups for large bulky items, furniture, and moving boxes. There is no additional charge for special collections except for the disposal of appliances. Special pick-ups of large items must be scheduled in advance by calling ADS.
Please be reminded that each homeowner is responsible for providing their own trash receptacle with a lid and that all trash must be placed within a covered trash receptacle. Trash in plastic bags or other containers, including but not limited to paper bags and boxes, are not permitted at curbside, except yard debris, which must be bagged in clear plastic bags or brown paper bags. Trash and recycling containers should not be placed at curbside until the evening before collection. After collection, all receptacles must be removed from public view and stored within an enclosed or screened area so as not to be visible from any street or Single Family Lot or Cluster Housing Lot on the same evening as the day of collection.
Homeowners should make sure all trash receptacles are secured with a lid before placing them curbside. During high winds, trash and debris can be blown about the community. Residents should bundle items such as paper and cardboard boxes so they do not blow out of the recycling bin. Residents are encouraged to mark their recycling bins and trash can with their house number so that it may be returned should it blow away and to discourage pilfering.
Cameron Station rules and regulations regarding trash and recycling are address in Policy Resolution 2008-06 - Trash Policy.
American Disposal's scheduled pickup for appliances will be every Thursday.The removal of ferrous metals/white goods such as stoves, washers, dryers, hot water tanks, and other bulky metallic items will need to be called into the office 24 hours in advance for scheduling. Refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioning units must have refrigerants removed and tagged by a certified technician before they are collected. There will be an additional charge for the removal of these items. Special pickups such as furniture, mattresses, and other non-metallic household items will still be collected on the 2nd pickup day of the week.
White goods are taken to a separate disposal site where they are recycled. Keep in mind recycling goods is environmentally friendly. Recycling these items conserves energy, natural resources, and reduces air and water pollution.
