Recycling & Garbage

Recycling & Garbage Services Overview

Our thanks and appreciation go to Richmond residents for recycling and reducing waste in our community. Every time you make a choice to recycle, you're helping us achieve our goal to be a Recycling Smart City and divert 70% of our waste from the landfill by 2015

Residents in single-family homes are now diverting 70% of their waste, and recycling is increasing in townhomes and other multi-family complexes. More information about Richmond's recycling efforts in available in the 2013 Recycling and Solid Waste Management Report. See link to below to download.
