Henrico County supports and promotes recycling as a way to conserve our natural resources. Through the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority (CVWMA), the County offers opportunities to recycle newspapers, mixed paper (junk mail, magazines), aluminum, cardboard, glass, metal cans and #1 and #2 plastics. Curbside recycling is offered in many areas of the County and Drop-off recycling centers are located throughout the County at most fire stations and the public use areas at the Charles City Road and Springfield Road Landfills.
If you are a Henrico County resident and live in a single family detached home accessible from a public road curbside recycling collection service is available to you through the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority (CVWMA). This service is free to county residents and collections are every other week. If you would like to sign up for this service, please contact the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority (CVWMA) at (804) 340-0900 or visit their website for further information.
Please remember that recycling bins must be at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on collection day and there is no need to cover your recycling bin when it rains. Sorting of recyclable materials is not required and bottles and cans should be cleaned of residues and caps and lids discarded in your regular trash. Glass bottles, metal cans, #1 and #2 plastic containers, newspapers, and mixed paper are accepted in the curbside recycling program.

The County maintains 12 recycling centers throughout Henrico that allow residents to bring glass bottles and jars, metal cans and foil products, #1 or #2 plastic bottles, newspapers, and mixed paper.
