Waste Reduction News

Welcome to our December 2016 Newsletter

Journey to the MRF

Enjoy our new Journey to the MRF video. Take a "virtual" journey from collection to a material recovery facility (MRF) located in Chester, VA. See how recycling does make a difference.

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 ways 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.
