    Re: New Trash Service

    I've always seperated my cans from the rest of my recyclables. When we lived in Herndon, there was a Fire House over in Reston that collected aluminum cans--and the proceeds (for what that's worth) went to a fund that helped burned children. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the fire house in Ashburn does this. I found another one off rte. 50 in fairfax (near fair oaks) that collects them--but it means i need to cart them into fairfax one day on my way to work.

    Re: New Trash Service

    We moved in to a new house in March and have asked New Vision to deliver our trash can each weel for over a month now. Is anyone else having this problem?
    They also will not take our trash bags if we leave them at the curb.

    Re: New Trash Service

    Please call the HOA office with your complaint - 703-729-9701 - there is no reason they should not be taking your trash bags. They were back ordered on receptacles, but I was told they now had them in stock...Are you on a new street? It's possible they don't know you are there yet. Please let us know your address so we can rectify the problem.

    I was told to call 2 weeks prior to moving in and we did. I also called Armstrong Management but it was a different number than the one you have here. We do live on a new street but everyone else on our street has trash cans. Armstrong Management just told me to call New Vision again which seems to be going no where so far.

    Armstrong Management only handles assessment collection for us. They should have given you the HOA office number. We are at the Nature Center on Claiborne.

    Re: New Trash Service

    Hi,
    when I moved into Broadlands last year the previous owner of the home either took their New Vision trash bin with them, or never had one delivered. I had an old trash bin from my previous home, but the rough handling New Vision gave it has left it in very poor condition after just 9 months. Can I call the HOA or New Vision to get one of their toters? Or is it too late, since I didn't call two weeks before I moved in? I'm not in a rush, I don't mind waiting a few weeks, or going by an office somewhere to pickup.

    Thanks!

    You can call the HOA Office at 703-729-9704 and request a new trash toter. New Vision will deliver it to your home

    Re: New Trash Service

    Hey Maureen,

    Are they ever going to get tricks like we see at the beach in NC, where they have an arm that grabs the cans and dumps them in? Lately they have been taking the contents of the trash can out of it by hand and then trying to dump the rest and it never gets evcerything out. Just a wish:)

    Re: New Trash Service

    Odd. I emailed New Vision a few weeks ago asking how to go about getting a new bin. On Monday my wife came home and found a new trash toter and recycle bin in front of our house. Not sure if it's b/c of the email (they never did reply to it) or because they're being very nice and simply replacing the trash can they damaged.

    Either way, kudos to New Vision for good customer service.

    Re: New Trash Service

    Since all New Vision's equipment is pretty new, I doubt it...I put everthing in trash bags before it goes in the toter and it usually all ends up in the truck

    That PDF mentions Fairfax County at the top; New Vision is following those same guidelines I assume?

    Re: New Trash Service

    I think most counties in this area have moved to "single stream" recycling. It is a pretty cool system, I saw a show about it a few months ago. Basically, they have conveyor systems that sorts all material types, so that is why you see it all being dumped together in one truck. At least, I hope so...
