Snow Plows on Broadlands Private Roads/Trash Services Postponed

Broadlands contractor, Signature Snow and Ice Control, has 6 plows working on our private roads clearing snow and salting intersections.  Crews have been on site since early this morning.

Due to inclement weather and dangerous driving conditions, Patriot Disposal has suspended all collection services for today, Thursday, November 15th at noon.  All trash AND recycling that was not collected today will be collected on Monday.

Implementation of Automated Side Loader Trucks This Monday, November 19

On Monday, November 19, 2018, Patriot Disposal will begin servicing the single-family units ONLY  in Broadlands with Automated Side Loader Trucks.  An automated side loader has an electronic arm that extends from the passenger’s side of the truck to grab and lift the trash can and dump its contents into the top of the truck for compacting.  This will require some minor adjustments in the way trash is placed curbside as well as parking near the curbside bins. 

***NEW TRASH REQUIREMENTS FOR SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTS ONLY***

During the first 3-4 weeks, Patriot supervisors will follow the side load truck to observe and

work out any transition concerns.

  • On collection days, place the container with the handles facing the house

  • Place the container so the trucks arm can access the trash container, leaving the same amount of space you leave for the mail carrier to deliver your mail

  • Please do not park cars near your container so the truck has enough space to access and dump your container. Advise visitors and contractors to do the same

  • Ensure the lid container is closed.  If your container is full, hold onto extra bags until the next service day or place material in a securely tied bag next to the can where it will be collected by hand by the driver, a following truck, or another truck servicing townhomes in the neighborhood. This may be done later in the day so please be patient if a separate truck is needed

There will be NO change to your service days. This will affect trash service ONLY for single family residences only, not townhomes. This new procedure will not change your recycling or yard debris collection in any way. Bulk items will still be picked up in the same manner they currently are by calling Patriot for a special pick up. This is the most cost effective and SAFE manner to service your communit

Please communicate any issues to Patriot Disposal at 1-703-257-7100 or the HOA office at 703-729-9704 with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your patience during this transition!

Fitness Center Remains Closed

Update: The Fitness Center is still inaccessible.  The storm last Friday affected more than one area of the entry-control system.  We have been able to repair some issues, however, we are waiting on contractors to evaluate additional problems affecting the key card access. We are now estimating repair by Monday, September 10th.

We appreciate your patience during this time.
