Think Outside the Bin! Big changes for recycling in Central Virginia!
Recyclers throughout the CVWMA service area have been asking for years to be able to recycle more than the #1 and #2 narrow neck plastic bottles currently accepted in its Residential Curbside Recycling and Drop-Off Programs. With the advancement of modern technology and new markets, CVWMA now accepts plastics #1- #7 bottles and containers, caps and lids, and waxy cartons such as milk, juice, juice boxes, and egg substitutes.
Don’t forget, all containers must be free of food residue and caps should be placed back on the containers before recycling.
Plastics bags, Styrofoam, food contaminated pizza boxes, hazardous materials containers and wires are still not accepted.
Click here for a complete list and photo descriptions of all accepted items.
And be sure to sign up to get curbside reminder emails, so you’ll never forget if it’s recycle week!
