WCA BoD seeks permission from RA to remove a tree from WCA common area: "WCA_RADRB-Application-Common_20190305-01"

The WCA Board of Directors has submitted to the Reston Association (RA) Design Review Board (DRB) a "Design Review Application" along with supporting documentation to justify the removal of a large, mid-1960's-vintage Silver Maple tree that is located in the cluster common area adjacent to the 11491-11499 Waterview Cluster row of townhouses.  The tree is not within a designated Chesapeake Bay Resource Protection Area (RPA).  

The WCA board asserts that the health of the tree has declined to the point that it represents a public safety hazard, as documented in writing by two independent arborists certified by the International Society of Arborists (ISA).  The WCA board requests permission from RA to dismantle the tree and thereby mitigate risks to persons and property.  

The WCA RA DRB application package is named, "WCA_RADRB-Application-Common_20190305-01", and is freely accessible to the public in a document repository at this link: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AomQNOWv0kQyg5NFDP0qdsq51ZnRYQ

The digital files within the shared repository were created as separate Adobe PDF-format logical entities.  These individual files were then added to a single zipped archive file as well as a "jumbo" PDF file that contains all of the individual PDF's stitched together in proper sequence, to make them easier to manage as a single entity, if desired.

RE-POST:Republic Services Yard Waste Service Resumes on Wednesday March 6, 2019

Republic Services (RS) will resume yard waste pickup service on Wednesday March 6, 2019 and continue the service through December 24, 2019.

Collection is limited to 10- biodegradable paper bags, plastic bags, averaged sized containers, or bundles (or a combination thereof) per pick-up day. Brush and limbs must be less than 6 inches in diameter, cut into 4-foot lengths or less, bundled with rope or twine and cannot exceed 50 pounds. Yard waste or bundles that do not meet these set-out requirements will not be collected. More than 10- bags and/or bundles of tied yard waste may be scheduled for a special pick-up at an additional charge. Republic Services does not collect dirt, bags of mulch, sod, rocks, open containers with poison ivy/oak/sumac, or uncontained brush with thorns.

If you have been hanging on to your Christmas Tree in the hopes of keeping it out of the regular solid waste stream, now is the time to unload it.  To be assured of pickup, the tree should be cut into 4-foot lengths (as is the rule for "yard waste"), however some RS customer service representatives have stated that RS will accept Christmas Trees up to eight feet in height.  For sure the tree must be devoid of all lights, ornaments, and tinsel.

LED Bulbs Accepted at Fairfax County Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Sites

LED LightLight-emitting diode bulbs are not accepted in curbside recycling bins; however, Fairfax County residents may bring LEDs to the county’s two household hazardous waste drop-off areas for recycling. The drop-off areas are located at the I-66 transfer station in Fairfax and the I-95 landfill complex in Lorton. LEDs are accepted free of charge.
LEDs have become the bulb of choice because they are more efficient than incandescent bulbs, but they often contain hazardous substances such as lead, nickel, silver, copper and arsenic. LEDs are not regulated as hazardous or universal waste by federal, state, or local regulatory statutes.  Unlike compact fluorescent bulbs which contain mercury, LEDs may be discarded as municipal solid waste, or regular trash.
In its continuing efforts to promote environmental sustainability practices, Fairfax County’s Solid Waste Management Program worked with its hazardous waste disposal vendor to begin accepting LEDs in 2019. This new recycling option exceeds current federal and state regulatory statutes for the disposal of LEDs.   

HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE HOURS

I-66 transfer station (4618 West Ox Road, Fairfax): Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
I-95 landfill complex (9850 Furnace Road, Lorton): Monday-Sunday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
