Fairfax County Petition for Trash Collection Services

April 17, 2020 at 8:31 pm

Update on 4/23/2020 – You should have received the mailer in your mailbox. The signature page did not match the instruction sheet, so the new signature page has been added for download below. Sorry about the inconvenience! Please download the updated form and send that one in for your vote.

Dear Residents, You will be receiving a mailer from the CWCA Board with instructions on how to sign the Petition for requesting our neighborhood to receive Fairfax County Trash Collection and Leaf Pickup Services. Below is the instruction letter that you will receive, and the attachments are attached as a .pdf file. If you do not receive the mailer, you can download the attached .pdf files, print them out and drop your signature page in my mailbox at 8706 Prudence Drive. We will also discuss the petition during the online meeting on the 21st of April between 7 and 8:30 pm.

Dear Canterbury Woods Resident,

The CWCA Board has distributed information about the
petition to move our neighborhood to Fairfax County Trash Collection Services
through multiple venues.  The
dissemination methods have included those listed below:  

residents are required to be contacted with respect to the petition for Fairfax
County trash collection services.  In
order for your vote to be counted, you need to fill out the signature page
enclosed in this mailer, place it in the pre-paid envelope that has been
included, and mail in your vote.  These
are your options:

  • Sign Petition #1; If you only want the
    county to provide Trash Collection/Recycling/Yard Waste services then sign ONLY
    Petition #1
  • Sign Petition #1 AND Petition #2; If you
    want the county to provide Trash Collection/Recycling/Yard Waste and Vacuum
    truck leaf collection services then you need to sign in two places.  Sign Petition #1 AND Petition #2
  • Do Not Support: If you do not wish to
    receive Fairfax County Trash Collection Services or Leaf Collection service then
    sign the I do not support section
  • I’m Not the homeowner: If you are not the
    homeowner, then please provide the homeowners contact information and return
    the envelope.

Please read the enclosed attachments.  Trash Collection services will be assessed on
your tax bill at $385/year.  Vacuum leaf
collection would also be assessed on your tax bill based upon your assessed
value; currently $65-$85 per year for our neighborhood.  Any questions please contact the CWCA
Board.   Thank you!!

Trash Petition Meeting Video from the 25 March meeting

March 24, 2020 at 6:19 pm

Sorry about those who dialed into the number provided, that was the number from the test meeting that we did, and Meetings generated a new number, so Lesson Learned for me on ensuring we give you the right number!  We did record the video, and obviously we don’t have the highest quality video, but at least you can see and hear what is going on, in case you missed the first part of the meeting.  Thanks to everyone that got into the meeting and participated and thanks to Lainie Shifflett from the county for her time!  Here is the link to watch the video.

You just received the Canterbury Woods Gazette in the mail recently and although the virus has upended a lot of our plans, we hope you’ll read the newsletter because there is still useful info to be had.     Most importantly, we’ve heard about the kindnesses of the people in our community during this very challenging time. Your good deeds are appreciated. Every thoughtful gesture reminds us how lucky we are to live in such a caring neighborhood.      We wish you safety and patience in these extraordinary times.
Sincerely,CWCA Board Members
