Don't Have Curbside Recycling?
Curbside Recycling is a service offered on a per/subdivision basis. The Department of Public Works is not providing the service it is simply facilitating the startup phase.
Hanover County, through the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority, has a Service District approach to curbside recycling. If the subdivision wishes to join the Service District, and curbside service can be provided to your area, the HOA or representative first communicates with the Public Works representative and then will write an e-mail requesting an informal public meeting. The County representative will send notices to all property owners in the subdivision announcing the meeting.
Following the informal meeting, if the subdivision still wants to proceed, petition drive occurs with the goal of getting 80 percent to request the service. If the 80 percent is reached and the Board of Supervisors approves the inclusion, then 100 percent of the subdivision is placed in the program and the cost is added to the real estate tax bill around $46 per year at present. However, the markets are going through a rapid change and we will most likely see annual costs rise to the $60 per year level per household very soon.
For service to begin on July 1, 2024, we would need all signatures by October 31, 2023. For additional questions please contact us by email or call us at 804-365-6181.
