No More Glass Recycling

We have been notified by our recycling / trash company that due to changes in Fairfax County, they will no longer accept glass in the recycling bins. Their notice is below.

Dear Property Manager:

Effective October 1, 2019, Fairfax and Prince William Counties no longer mandate that glass be collected at curbside for recycling. Therefore, effective November 11, 2019, Patriot Disposal will no longer pick up glass as part of recycling. Customers are encouraged to re-use glass containers, bring them to a purple bin located in Fairfax County, Alexandria, Arlington, and Prince William County, or put them in with the regular trash for pickup.

Beginning on November 11th, recycling that contains glass will be considered contaminated and will not be picked up.

As you likely have seen in the news recently, U. S. recycling markets have a long way to go to recover from the impacts of China’s import ban but over time the markets should adjust and create domestic demand for our materials.

Please visit the following websites for additional information regarding glass recycling:

We anticipate that Loudoun and Arlington Counties may soon implement the same policy. Should this occur, we will notify you promptly. Thank you in advance for your attention to this change. If you have any questions, please contact our customer service department at 703-257-7100.

Stormwater project at the bottom of Aspen Hill

Hello, I got this the other day, and thought I would pass it along.  When the board finds more information, we’ll post it here.


My name is Jasdeep Saini and I with Fairfax County’s Stormwater Planning Division. We are in the initial stages of developing a plan to restore approximately 2,200 linear feet of the stream adjacent to your communities on Fairfax County Park Authority Land. As we proceed with site assessments and design development, we want to ensure the communities of Indian Run Townhouses, Little River Mews, Terrace Townhouses of Annandale, Brentleigh, and Aspen Hill are aware of the project and involved in the design.

We would like to hold a meeting with all five of your HOA’s and the larger community in March. The purpose of the meeting will be to introduce myself and the project, provide a project status and overview of the design process, and hear any concerns the community has regarding the project or stream. Do any of you have a meeting space that could be used to host this meeting? Also, I am interested in any date and time preferences you may have.

Through this community meeting and your input, we would like to recruit one or two members of each community that can represent the community and be part of our design team. This will require attending several meetings during business hours during the iterative design process to help make decisions and guide the design.

I am the Project Manager for this project, so please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I am excited about this project, and look forward to working with you.

If you are not the correct contact for the community, please let me know and forward this information along to the correct contact.

Thank You,
Jasdeep Saini
