Recycling in James City County UPDATE


The three James City County "Convenience Centers" are no longer accepting #3-#7 plastics due to lack of reliable recycling markets. Last October they had begun taking them but could no longer assure that these plastics were indeed being recycled. Many similar community programs discover that these particular plastics are being shipped to China and burned for energy or landfilled. The convenience centers still DO ACCEPT #1 and #2 plastic bottles with necks only.

Gloucester County residents, however, can drop off #1 through #7 plastics at that county's recycling and disposal center locations. Click here for more information.

See the 2013 Recycling Guide link on this blog (at left) for complete information on where and how to recycle almost everything.
