Recycling Perks, The Program


Ashland is the “Center of the Universe”! Residents of the “Best Place to Raise your Kids” in Virginia (2009, Bloomberg Business) get the chance to shop at sweet local businesses and help save the planet by recycling every other week. Ashland may be small but it’s big on recycling!

Ashland is part of the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority so Ashland residents can find much-needed waste and recycling information on the CVWMA-Ashland page. Recycling in Ashland is every other Monday. If you need a reminder emailed to you about recycling collection day, use the collection reminder tool found in your Recycling Perks My Account page.

Recycling carts are GREEN and trash carts are GRAY.

Recycling Perks welcomes Ashland businesses to participate in the rewards program by offering a discount to local recyclers. The program is free for businesses to participate and more information can be found by clicking here.
