Community Guide

Hollin Hills is a great place to live — beautiful architecture, plentiful parks, friendly people, and a long tradition of volunteerism and democratic management of community affairs.  This website is a great place to look for resources about living in Hollin Hills from how to get involved in the community to who to call in an emergency or simply to get more information.

So if you’ve recently moved in, welcome! If you haven't already been welcomed by one of our greeters, keep an eye out as one will be by soon.  In the meantime, please register for an account for a resident account so that you receive the latest information right to your email.

Consult with the DRC BEFORE Starting Renovations 

To help preserve the historic architectural heritage (and property values) of Hollin Hills, be sure to consult with the Design Review Committee before starting any additions or renovations that affect the exterior of your home.  The process is explained here.

Get Involved in the Hollin Hills Community

There’s always a lot going on in Hollin Hills. Join us in Voigt Park for the annual picnics on the Fourth of July and Oktoberfest, sign up for the pool or the pickleball club, volunteer for one of our Civic Association committees or run for a Board position, become a park “warden” or help with the regular clean-up parties in the parks, act as a “greeter” to welcome newcomers into the community, be a docent at the biennial House + Garden Tour, write for the monthly newsletter  — there are plenty of opportunities to help out and meet people, no matter your interests or how much time you have.

And the easiest way to get started is to become a member of the Civic Association.

Trash and Recycling 

Fairfax County handles trash and recycling pickup for Hollin Hills. Our weekly pickup day is Tuesdays, and residents are requested not to put their bins at the curb before 3 pm the day before pickup. Be sure your bins are curbside by 6 am the day of pickup.

From March 1 to December 24, yard waste (leaves, grass trimmings, shrub and tree trimmings) must be placed at the curb separately for collection.  Residents can also schedule five free “special pickups” of bulk and brush items (two cubic yards) per year.

Fairfax County no longer accepts glass bottles and jars in the curbside recycling program. Residents should bring them to one of the purple, glass-only recycling containers located throughout the region. (There is one at the Mount Vernon District Governmental Center at 2511 Parkers Lane, near Sherwood Regional Library.) If this is not possible, glass should be placed in the trash.

Fairfax County residents can also drop off trash and recycling at the I-66 Transfer Station and I-95 Landfill Complex disposal centers.

The Fairfax County Trash and Recycling website has all the details on what is trash, recycling and yard waste, and how to request a special pickup for brush and bulk items.
