New Recycling Carts

Changes to Collections

  • Beginning July 1, all recyclables must be placed inside the CVWMA cart for collection (this includes cardboard boxes). Items placed outside the cart will not be collected.
  • Personal containers will no longer be collected.
  • Some Henrico County homes will switch from Red Week collection to Blue Week collection. Postcard notifications went out in May about these changes. Verify your collection day with the self-service tool.
