Recycling at Home

Setting Up the Home for Recycling

A home recycling center can be setup many different ways. One way is to have sturdy boxes for paper, plastic, cans and glass. Sorting recyclables prior to coming to the collection center makes your trip quick and easy.

The Rockbridge County Collection Centers are for residential use only. The county strongly encourages citizens to recycle the following materials:

  • Tin
  • Aluminum
  • Batteries
  • Plastic #1 & 2 Only
  • Glass (all colors)
  • Mixed paper
  • Cardboard
  • Scrap metal
  • Electronics (Landfill Collection Center only)
Support staff is available during hours of operation at each collection center to assist the public with recyclables and help with identification if needed. For questions regarding procedures, please contact Daniel Miear at 540-460-7331.
