Red Week Residential Recycling

Industry wide driver and helper shortages and truck issues have resulted in delays and cancelations of residential recycling in central Virginia.

As we continue to work on getting caught up, Red Week recyclers need to put recycling containers out on their REGULAR  collection day. TFC crews may start some Red Mon collections on Mon, Oct 18 so please have containers out. Collections could occur 1 day later.

Please leave your recycling out for collection or use a drop off location
