WHAT: Meridian Waste and Lunenburg County will host a county-wide Recycling Right event open to all residents. 

WHEN: April 17, 2021. 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

WHERE: Central High School - 131 K-V Rd, Victoria, VA 23974. Main Parking Lot 

WHY:Meridian Waste and Lunenburg County are each committed to a cleaner and greener community. The Recycling Right Drop-Off event has been created for residents of Lunenburg County to recycle during the drop-off event and ongoing. 

Residents are encouraged to separate their recycling materials into four categories before heading to the drop-off event. Social distancing guidelines will be followed, and vehicles will be able to drive close to the drop-off containers for residents to unload their items. The four recycling categories or “streams” are noted below. 

Acceptable items for recycling:

  1. Plastics labeled #1 & #2 such as plastic bottles. Plastics must be clear and non-black.

  2. Steel and aluminum cans.

  3. Mixed papers: Office paper, junk mail, shopping receipts, newspapers.

  4. Clean, corrugated cardboard. Boxes must be broken down and tape removed. 

All items must be rinsed clean and dried before drop-off. Soiled items, such as greasy pizza boxes, unrinsed soda pop cans, and waxy paper are not acceptable and will be rejected as they contaminate the recycling stream. 

The event is sponsored by Meridian Waste’s Lunenburg Landfill located at 45 Landfill Rd. in Lunenburg. The landfill has undergone significant improvements since Meridian Waste assumed management of the site.  For example, the former unlined landfill has been closed per Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards. 

New, state-of-the-art disposal cells have been constructed and are now being utilized, and a new scale house has been constructed along with many aesthetic improvements which have been completed at the site.
