CVWMA Celebrates 25 Years in Region

On December 20th, CVWMA will celebrate 25 years of regional collaboration. More than 1.1 million people now have more convenient access to recycling. A few of our proudest accomplishments include a regional recycling rate of over 50%; we've recycled 2.5 million tons over 25 years; given back $4.5 million to our member localities.

Think. Shop. Buy. Local

Be sure to shop local ! From Thanksgiving to New Year's Day, household waste increases by more than 25%. There are a number of way that you can modify your choices this holiday season to reduce the amount of waste you create.
 
If live trees are part of your celebration, please recycle them.
