Recycling Drop-off Site at Lake Drive Plaza to be Discontinued

Recycling Logo
The Town of Vinton partnered with several private providers for the recycling drop-off site at Lake Drive Plaza.  They have decided to discontinue the service, and the recycling containers will be removed as of March 1, 2017. 

For citizen disposal of recyclable materials there are other services available:

The Town of Vinton provides curbside collection of recyclables for Town residents on a bi-weekly schedule. Information on recyclable items and the schedule can be found on the 2017 recycling calendar.

For Roanoke County residents in East County, there is a drop-off location at William Byrd High School. Please note that this trailer is not available for dropoff materials Friday through Monday mornings as it is moved to another recycling location to handle overflow.  Visit Roanoke County's Recycling webpage at:  http://www.roanokecountyva.gov/index.aspx?NID=112, for a list of other recycling drop-off locations.

The Roanoke Valley Resource Authority (RVRA) has a permanent drop-off recycling center at the Tinker Creek Transfer Station, located at 1020 Hollins Road NE, just off of Orange Avenue. This service is free to residents of the cities of Roanoke and Salem, County of Roanoke and Town of Vinton. Check out www.RVRA.net for details.

RDS, a private company,accepts residential recyclable items at their 835 Korte Street SW, location in Roanoke. Look to the website www.rds-virginia.com for directions to the facility.

Vinton views recycling as an important part of environmental stewardship. Materials that are recycled are diverted from landfills which preserves resources and saves money.

For additional information on the Town’s curbside recycling program, to request a recycling bin for your household, or to request a 2017 Town calendar, contact the Vinton Public Works Department at (540) 983-0646.
