Recycling & Trash Disposal Guidelines

Montgomery County, Blacksburg and Christiansburg residents may place household waste and recycling materials in the waste compactor or roll-off containers at the consolidated sites.

Place all household waste and recycling in the proper containers to reduce littering. Please pick up any trash you drop. Remember to close the recycling loop by purchasing recycled products packaged in recycled material.

Montgomery Regional Solid Waste Authority (MRSWA) Landfill hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Large household items

Containers for large item refuse, such as furniture, are available for your convenience at county consolidated sites.

Please remove doors from refrigerators and freezers or tape doors shut. Remove non-metal parts. Remove all food from refrigerators prior to disposal at a consolidated site. Refrigerators with food left inside will not be recycled and may not be accepted.

Aluminum Recycling

Because some aluminum items--aluminum foil, aluminum cooking pans, cat food cans--are a different alloy than aluminum beverage cans, they cannot be recycled with the other single stream recyclables.

These items should not be placed in the recycling containers at the County drop off sites. These items can be taken directly to the Montgomery Regional Solid Waste Authority (MRSWA) separate from other single stream recyclables if desired.

Acceptable Items for Recycling

Consolidated sites offer single stream recycling, which means that you don't need to sort recyclables. 

  • Mixed paper (single stream)
  • Newspaper, glossy magazines and catalogs (single stream)
  • Bottles, jugs, cans and jars: plastics #1 and #2 only, glass and metal (single stream) containers
  • Corrugated cardboard, including CLEAN pizza boxes (in separate container from other recyclables). Pizza boxes and other small cardboard items can be placed in single stream containers.

Unacceptable Items for Recycling

  • Styrofoam
  • Metal fuel tanks, sealed cylinders or items that may be considered contaminated (vehicle fuel tanks, oil drums, etc.)
  • Commercial/business waste
  • Construction/demolition waste, including renovation/remodel waste*
  • Dead animals
  • Smoldering ashes
  • Automotive parts, except tires
  • Yard waste*

*Some unacceptable items may be taken to the MRSWA.
