Public Use Areas
The County operates two Public Use Areas that are for residential disposal of trash and recycling. These facilities are open seven days per week from 7:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. (except on certain holidays). In eastern Henrico we operate the Charles City Road Public Use Area located at 2075 Charles City Road. In the Western Henrico we operate the Springfield Road Public Use Area located at 10600 Fords Country Lane. These facilities are available for use by County residents for disposal of their household trash and recycling. Disposal fees for trash are $3 per trip. You may also purchase a book of tickets at a discounted rate. Each ticket is valid for one trip. At both of these facilities the recycling centers are available free of charge.
