York County Recycles!
York County participates in a regional curbside recycling program that is administered by the Virginia Peninsulas Public Service Authority (VPPSA) and also includes James City County and the Cities of Poquoson and Williamsburg. The contractor for this service is County Waste (County Recycling.)
- ACCEPTABLE MATERIALS (CURBSIDE PROGRAM ONLY)
- Curbside recycling service is available to all single-family homes, most trailer homes, and some multi-family/duplex communities. Please note that carts should be placed at the curb or roadside by 7:00 AM on the morning of your collection day to ensure collection.
- The Basic Service option of York County's curbside solid waste collections program provides one 96-gallon cart for weekly garbage collection and one 96, 65, or 35-gallon cart for every other week collection of recyclable materials. Residents who do not subscribe to the County's curbside garbage collection program can receive "Recycling Only" service at a rate of $2.00 per month.
- To determine your COLLECTION DAY, you will be directed to the PROPERTY INFORMATION SYSTEM (PIS.) After entering the PIS program, please enter your address (like 123 Main - do not include the street suffix - Rd, Ln, St). Collection day information for recycling and garbage collections can be found under the Waste Management heading. Clicking on the Curbside Collection Calendar link below will further direct you to the calendar showing the schedule for Red and Blue collection weeks.
The York County Drop-off Center is located at 145 Goodwin Neck Road and is open to anyone wishing to recycle. Hours of operations are Monday through Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
We encourage York County residents to join us in our commitment to recycling! If you would like to subscribe, change or discuss your service, please contact the Waste Management Division at 890-3780, Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., or through our online “SERVICE REQUEST SYSTEM” shown near the top of the left column on our pages.
REMEMBER . . . RECYCLING saves natural resources AND disposal dollars by diverting waste from the garbage stream!
