Trash and Recycling Services
Vantage does not have a master trash collection service contract, nor is it part of a Sanitary District in Fairfax County for County trash collection. Vantage homeowners should arrange trash and recycling collection with a company registered to perform such services in Fairfax County. The county maintains a list of registered companies on their web site. See https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/publicworks/recycling-trash/registered-solid-waste-collection-companies for more information and a list of registered companies. Listed below are registered companies that provide services for individual homeowners.

Vantage residents who live on private streets can minimize wear and tear on their private streets by using the same trash collection and recycling company for all the residents on their private street, so only one company’s trucks use the street.

- A volunteer site linking people who need help clearing snow with those willing to provide it.
- How VDOT clears subdivisions in northern Virginia (Link to VDOT press release)
- “Trucks are pre-positioned in subdivisions whenever the forecast calls for two or more inches of snow. Each subdivision has at least one dedicated truck and plowing begins when two inches have accumulated. Main thoroughfares are repeatedly plowed during a storm. Once the storm has stopped and those roads are clear, crews work to make residential streets and cul-de-sacs “passable.”
- A neighborhood street is considered passable when a path is drivable (with caution) for an average passenger vehicle. The road will not be cleared curb-to-curb or to bare pavement, and may remain snow-packed, uneven and rutted (especially following any refreeze). Chemicals are not typically used in subdivisions, but crews sand hills, curves and intersections as needed to provide traction. For most storms, one snowplow pass, about eight to ten feet wide, is made.
- Once drivers complete a minimum of one pass on the roads in a map, they report back that the route is complete.
- VDOT judges subdivisions complete through processed snow maps, resident call volume, AVL and feedback from VDOT monitors.”
