LUNENBURG RECYCLE RIGHT IS MERIDIAN WASTE’S FIRST ANNUAL EVENT

Recycling Efforts To Continue in Lunenburg County

 

Lunenburg, VA (October 13,2020) – Meridian Waste Virginia, LLC, a subsidiary of Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, held its first annual Recycle Right event in Lunenburg County, Va. 

The first annual Recycle Right Drop-Off event was created for the residents of Lunenburg County, their involvement in recycling, and to understand how to recycle. The event was held on Saturday, October 10, at Central High School. 

The rain did not spoil residents recycling their aluminum and steel cans, plastics, mixed paper, and cardboard. “We are thankful for the turn out to this event, and the enthusiasm of the community to participate in recycling,” said Meridian Waste Government and Community Affairs Manager Misty Grant. “We appreciate those who were able to join us, and look forward to growing the recycling program along with the residents’ commitment to recycling the correct items, and how to best prepare them for optimum recycling value,” she said.

Residents can recycle at any time at the Lunenburg County Convenience Centers. For more information, please visit Lunenburg County’s Facebook Page Facebook.com/LunenburgCountyVA.

Meridian Waste placed an additional container for residents to continue dropping off clean, presorted recyclable materials at 13498 Oral Oaks Rd. in Victoria, Va. 

Acceptable materials must be clean, dry, and presorted. Residents are required to deposit materials in the proper location of the container. All items must be rinsed clean and dried before drop-off. Soiled items, such as greasy pizza boxes or waxy paper, are not acceptable and will be rejected as they contaminate the recycling stream.
