When roads and/or areas are deemed unsafe due to snow or ice, trash and recycling collection may be suspended for collection by American Disposal. If suspension occurs, services will resume on the next regularly scheduled collection day. We will make every effort to find out about suspension of service and post information on this website and on our Facebook group page.

NEW TREES ALONG HIGH MEADOW:  You may have noticed that the 9 dying Ash Trees on High Meadow have been replaced with male Gingko, Red Bud, and Cleveland Pear trees, all of which were on a list of trees recommended to us by the Fairfax County arborist. These three trees were selected in particular as they all have bright colors at varying times throughout the year. It is our understanding that during most of the year at least one of the trees will be at its peak color/bloom.  

.  Please see below and the Runnymeade Calendar of Events for details.

Grounds Committee News. . .



The RHOA Board contracts to provide snow management/removal services for Runnymeade streets.  Generally, plowing will not commence unless and until snow accumulations reach approximately two (2) inches (as determined by reports from Reagan National Airport), or conditions and weather forecasts warrant (i.e. accumulated frozen precipitation that is expected to freeze/remain frozen for an extended period of time).   


All residents are responsible for clearing the sidewalks on their property, the sidewalks bordering their property, and their driveways.  When removing snow from your sidewalks and parking spaces, please be considerate of your neighbors and DO NOT put the snow out into the streets (or in front of your neighbor’s car).  

The RHOA Resolutions provide that residents must ensure that their motor vehicles are not parked in such a way as to hinder proper snow plowing by our contractor.


Protect Our Water

When it rains, the water running along our streets vanishes down storm drains in Runnymeade. Although many people assume otherwise, the water in a storm drain does not go to a wastewater treatment plant. Instead, it drains
directly into Cameron Run, which leads to the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.

This means motor oil, pesticides, paint, yard debris, harmful fertilizers, and trash all have the potential to impact our drinking water, as well as impair or destroy many forms of aquatic life.

Fortunately, there are some steps we can all take to make a difference:


·         Storm drains are NOT trash cans! Put trash and recycling where it belongs, not in our streams.

·         Properly dispose of motor oil — one gallon of oil can pollute two million gallons of water

·         Don’t let suds from washing your car go down the storm drain – they can be toxic to wildlife.

·         Scoop the poop. Help keep harmful bacteria from dog waste out of our waterways.

·         Be careful with fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides. Use only when necessary, apply when rain will not wash them away, and sweep up excess.

·         Prevent and report storm drain dumping. If you see hazardous wastes like paint, pesticides, or motor oil dumped in storm drains, report it to Fairfax County at 703-691-2131, TTY 711.

Only Rain in the Storm Drain! Make sure that nothing other than water ever goes down your storm drain. Help keep water safe for children and future generations.
