The Town of Christiansburg will be closing its recycling drop-off sites over the next five months, beginning with the site on Cambria Street, which will close on Feb. 1.
The Town has been offering curbside recycling service to its residents since July 1, 2018, and will be introducing curbside recycling service to businesses on February 1, 2020. Because curbside service is now a reality, there is less need for recycling drop-off sites around town.
There has also recently been an increase in contamination and trash-dumping at the Town’s recycling drop-off sites, causing much of the recycling from those sites to be rejected. For those interested in still utilizing drop-off sites, Montgomery County offers locations that are staffed to reduce contamination and trash-dumping.
The schedule for closing the sites is as follows:
- On February 1, 2020, the Cambria Site (Cambria St./Palmer St. Intersection) will close.
- On March 1, 2020, the Betty Drive Site (Betty Dr./Depot St. Intersection) will close.
- On April 1, 2020, the Food Lion Parking Lot Site (1530 Roanoke St.) will close.
- On May 1, 2020, the Home Depot Site (200 Conston Ave.) will close.
- On June 1, 2020, the Christiansburg High School Site (100 Independence Blvd.) will close.
