All Residents!

Effective 1 July 2015Whisperwood trash and recycling will only be collected at designated locations on Whisperwood Glen Lane or Silentwood Lane.  See below for a map of these locations.  This is part of an effort to combat the ongoing issue of trash/debris spreading throughout the neighborhood on trash day.  Other reminders/tips regarding trash and recycling:

  • A rigid, lidded container is the preferred receptacle to contain your trash that goes out to the curb.  If you do not have a space to store a lidded container, consider partnering with a neighbor and sharing a trash can or minimally placing your trash in a 1 mil thickness black garbage bag as this does aid in keeping crows/rodents out of the trash.  We recommend against white kitchen bags are generally too thin and can be penetrated easily by animals).
  • Whisperwood strongly encourages residents to put their house number on trash cans and recycling bins.
  • Trash cans and recycling bins should be picked up and returned to property by evening on pick-up day.
  • If your recycling bin goes missing, first check with your neighbors. If still missing, a replacement bin may be purchased for $10.00 from American Disposal (Tel: 703-368-0500)
If you have any questions, please contact the board!  Your assistance is greatly appreciated, it only takes a small effort to keep our neighborhood looking GREAT!
