Fees for extra trash in effect in Falls Church

Homeowners in the city of Falls Church will have to pay if they generate too much trash.

This week the city implements a new policy for residents in single-family detached homes. Those who can’t fit the trash into a city-issued cart will have to buy $1 stickers and place them on the extra bags of trash if they want them to be picked up.

A similar policy will go into effect for townhomes and condominiums next month.

The city expects to raise $15,000 annually with the sticker fees.
