Augusta County recycling programs also seeing changes

augusta countySignificant changes are coming to Augusta County’s recycling program.

  • March 28th will be the last day plastics will be accepted at the Augusta Regional Landfill Public Use Site.
  • Glass will be hauled from County dumpsites to the regional landfill where it will provide a beneficial cover.

This change is in the wake of the recent decision of Sonoco Recycling in Fishersville to no longer accept glass and commingled plastics effective April 1st. Augusta County and neighboring localities were notified of this change in a letter dated March 1, 2019.

“It is unfortunate that recycling market conditions have caused us to no longer be able to accept plastics for recycling”, said County Administrator Timothy Fitzgerald. “Citizens should know that Augusta County is committed to our well-established recycling program and if market conditions change in the future we will re-evaluate our options”.

No changes are being made to mixed paper, cardboard, metal cans, or aluminum cans at this time.

For further information please contact the County Administration office at 540-245-5610.
