Trips to the landfill could become less time consuming for those living in Prince William County.
The Solid Waste Division is offering a Solid Waste Disposal Decal that aims to speed up the process of entering trash and recycling locations, according to a release from Solid Waste Management.
These include the Balls Ford Road Compost Facility, Prince William County Landfill, and sites where waste is collected on most Saturdays – The Nokesville School, 12375 Aden Road in Nokesville, from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and Evergreen Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad, 3510 James Madison Highway in Haymarket, between 7 a.m. and Noon.
Users have been able to enter by showing their license.
“Starting in November, the landfill and compost facility are closed on Sundays. We know closing the solid waste facilities on Sunday will increase use on the other days of the week, so residents can help our traffic control staff and each other by displaying a disposal decal on their windshield,” Deborah Campbell from the Solid Waste Division said in a release. “A decal is quicker than using a driver’s license for entry, so if there is a queue at traffic control, it will move faster.”
Applications for the Solid Waste Disposal Decal may be filled out on the county’s website. It will be mailed and is expected to arrive within two or three weeks.
Residents can receive it the same day by applying in person. Those interested in this option should visit the Ferlazzo Building, 15941 Donald Curtis Drive in Woodbridge; Taxpayer Services at the McCoart Building, 1 County Complex Court in Woodbridge; or Sudley North Government Center, 7987 Ashton Avenue in Manassas.
Each address can get up to two stickers. They may not be used for commercial purposes or by anyone residing in local cities or towns.
Once it has been received, the decal needs to be attached inside the windshield on the driver’s side – an inch from the left side and two or three inches above the state inspection sticker.
Residents aren’t allowed to transfer decals or let individuals who aren’t county residents use them.
Staff members from the Solid Waste Division might still request additional identification.
