ADS Rate change – Yard Debris Collection 10/1 Yard Debris Collection: As you may already be aware, Prince William County revised their code, which no longer allows yard debris material to be mixed or collected with regular household trash. This new mandate requires an additional truck to be added to the community at a minimum of once a week during yard waste season for yard waste material only. Therefore, your other services will remain the same and this will be added as an additional pick up. For more information on this mandate, please visit their website at: www.pwcva.gov/department/solid-waste-management/yard-waste Please find your new announcement regarding the adjusted rates as of (October 1, 2021) and yard waste service day here. If you have any questions, please email us at HOA@adsimail.com. You may also call our Customer Service Department at 703.368.0500 Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
