Lunenburg's Second Recycle Right Event
Lunenburg's Second Recycle Right Event
featured in Community and Recycling

Lunenburg County, Virginia, residents participated in their second Recycle Right event held on April 17, 2021. 



Residents separated their recycling into four streams before heading to the drop-off event. 

  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. 

To be applicable to be recycled, 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. Plastic bags cannot be recycled - plastic bags shown were for participants to transport their items only. 

This event was sponsored by Meridian Waste’s Lunenburg Landfill, located at 45 Landfill Rd., Lunenburg. The landfill has undergone significant improvements since Meridian Waste assumed management of the site.  The former unlined landfill has been closed per VA DEQ and federal EPA standards, new state-of-the-art disposal cells have been constructed and are now being utilized, a new scale house has been constructed and many aesthetic improvements have been made at the site.
