ADS provides one wheeled, covered trash bin & recycling bin for each residence. Please note that each resident is entitled to one trash tote and one recycling tote upon moving in, and these totes belong to American Disposal Services - the totes will stay with the residence if an owner sells their home.

You are encouraged to keep a record of the serial number of your tote(s) should you need to identify it in the future. Requests for additional recycling bins and totes are accepted by phone at 703-368-0500.
