Drop-off Recycling

CVWMA offers convenient drop-off recycling collection sites to residents of central Virginia. Collection containers are located at thirty-six convenient locations in nine participating counties and cities. All of the drop-off recycling sites accept the same materials that are collected through the residential (curbside)recycling program. Items accepted include aluminum and steel cans, kitchen, laundry bath plastic bottles, tubs, and containers ( free of food residue and put back on bottle or carton), food and beverage cartons , cardboard, mixed paper, and glass bottles and jars.  The instructional decals on the containers explain where to place specific materials. They also tell you what is not accepted.

Remember, plastic bags, plastic bagged recyclables, Styrofoam, shredded paper, or food contaminated pizza boxes are not accepted.  Over 7,000 tons of recyclables have been recycled through this program this past fiscal year and not sent to area landfills.
