Recycling Center Sign

Important!! Please see below for changes to the recycling drop-off center locations and availability effective July 31, 2013!!

The Town of Leesburg maintains one recycling drop-off center for residents and businesses who do not have access to curbside recycling collection. 
The center is located at:

  • Wal-Mart Parking Lot - intersection of Edwards Ferry Road and the Leesburg Bypass

***Note - there are signs regarding acceptable materials posted at the site - however, the containers themselves may NOT have the same information.  CSI transfers containers to various locations so the containers at our site may change from week to week.*** 

Please be assured that regardless of the labeling on the actual container, the drop-off center accepts the following materials co-mingled:

Acceptable Materials

Office/copy paper, newspaper, glossy newspaper ads, etc.
Junk Mail (including window envelopes), magazines, catalogs and phonebooks
Plastics #1-7 (regardless of shape/size of container - this includes some "Styrofoam" pieces - they MUST be labeled with a recycling triangle and a number 1-7 to be acceptable!)
Glass bottles and jars (lids and labels are acceptable)
Cardboard and paperboard (cereal boxes, pizza boxes, etc. - remove wax liners -must be broken down to fit in cardboard containers)
Tin and aluminum cans (crush to conserve space - labels OK)

The drop-off center cannot accept the following:

Prohibited Materials

Household or business trash
Hazardous Household Waste - visit Loudoun County for disposal information
Yard waste and brush
Bulky items and construction debris

DO NOT LEAVE HOUSEHOLD FURNITURE, TIRES, CHEMICAL AND OTHER ITEMS OUTSIDE THE RECYCLING CONTAINERS - THESE ARE NOT TRASH DUMPSTERS!!! 
Leaving prohibited items outside of the recycling containers is considered illegal dumping and may incur a fine or penalty.
