It’s definitely not a sexy subject but, trash is a headache for all of us. In Snowden Bridge, trash is picked up on Mondays. According to the HOA rules, trash cans should be placed out on the street as late as possible on Sunday evening, and moved out of sight as early as possible on Monday. Furthermore, trash can lids should be fully closed. In other words, we can’t overstuff our trash cans.
That’s all good but what happens if you are still days away from pickup-day and you already have too much trash that overflows the trash can?
Not to worry. Frederick County to the rescue!
Many people, especially those new to the area, don’t know that Frederick County offers several Citizens Convenience Centers where you can drop off your trash for free. Convenience Centers only accept household trash and recyclables.
The closest Convenience Center to Snowden Bridge is at 801 Greenwood Rd, Winchester, VA 22602, which is about 12 minutes from Snowden Bridge.
UPDATE: A new Convenience Center opened in July 2018 in Stephenson. The address is 235 Hot Run Dr., Stephenson, VA 22656. Hot Run Drive is off Stephenson Rd. To get there from Snowden Bridge, make a right on Old Charles Town Rd., left on Gun Club Rd. and another left on Stephenson Rd. It is about a mile away.
For larger items or other type of debris, Frederick County operates a landfill that’s only 18 minutes from Snowden Bridge, at 146 Landfill Rd., Winchester, VA 22602.
