Hats Off For a Real One: Reston Trash Founder Passes Away

Longtime Reston Trash Service owner/operator John Hasle, who retired in 2015 for health reasons after four decades of serving neighborhoods in South Reston, passed away last week, according to family members.

Reston Trash was one of the last truly mom and pop businesses serving Reston, and customers and well-wishers raised nearly $6,000 to help with his medical expenses.

Confidential Restonian Operative “Elizabeth” shared the news, adding:

From his retirement party, I have an email list of his many customers, most of them longtime Restonians. One wrote back and said “Part of the funkiness and authenticity of "old" Reston slipping away.”
“He was one in a million,” CRO “Elizabeth” writes, and we agree.

    RIP John (and Ted Lee, his friend and co-worker). Two of the nicest guys one could ever meet. You are both missed.
