These are some of the programs/services we offer for the residents and businesses in Jefferson and Belmont Counties; you will find more information about these services in the pages of this website.
RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING – We have over 37 community drop-off containers/barns located throughout both Counties as well as a Curbside Program in Powhatan Point.
WASTE PAPER RECYCLING containers are placed at participating schools and businesses for their paper and cardboard. The schools receive funds for the paper generated or designated for them.
HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION is an annual event for residents to dispose of their chemicals, paints, light bulbs, lead acid batteries, and grill propane tanks safely. The location alternates between the two Counties each year but is open to all our district residents. Information is posted on our Upcoming Events page once the dates and locations are set each year.
E-CYCLING COLLECTION SITES ~ We have TWO (2) locations that accept District resident electronic waste. Electronics can only be dropped off during the scheduled hours and by our District residents only. No business waste will be accepted. For locations, dates and times and a list of what is accepted see our Electronics page. All of the materials collected are managed and recycled in accordance with all State, Local recycling Laws and Regulations.
COMMUNITY CLEANUP & TIRE COLLECTIONS are held in Communities throughout the two Counties during the spring/summer months, with most accepting old furniture and general large junk items in addition to tires. Collection dates/locations are posted on our Upcoming Events page usually each Spring and remain posted until the collections are over.
HOUSEHOLD BATTERY RECYCLING ~ In partnership with several businesses and organizations, collection buckets are located throughout the two Counties for residents to drop-off their household batteries for recycling.
GRANTS ~ Community Award and Comprehensive Grants are available each year, ranging from $100 to $5,000.
