Important!! Please see below for changes to the recycling drop-off center locations and availability effective July 31, 2013!!
The Town of Leesburg maintains one recycling drop-off center for residents and businesses who do not have access to curbside recycling collection. The center is located at:
- Food Lion Parking Lot - South King Street Location at Davis Avenue
On July 31, 2013, the public-use recycling containers located in the parking lot of the Food Lion on South King Street will be removed. Residents are encouraged to use the public recycling containers located in the Wal-Mart parking lot on Edwards Ferry Road NE for recycling drop offs.
Town staff is researching alternate locations for a recycling center on the south side of Leesburg.
- Wal-Mart Parking Lot - intersection of Edwards Ferry Road and the Leesburg Bypass
***Note - there are signs regarding acceptable materials posted at the site - however, the containers themselves may NOT have the same information. CSI transfers containers to various locations so the containers at our site may change from week to week.***
Please be assured that regardless of the labeling on the actual container, the both drop-off center accepts the following materials co-mingled:
|Office/copy paper, newspaper, glossy newspaper ads, etc.|
|Junk Mail (including window envelopes), magazines, catalogs and phonebooks|
|Plastics #1-7 (regardless of shape/size of container - this includes some "Styrofoam" pieces - they MUST be labeled with a recycling triangle and a number 1-7 to be acceptable!)|
|Glass bottles and jars (lids and labels are acceptable)|
|Cardboard and paperboard (cereal boxes, pizza boxes, etc. - remove wax liners -must be broken down to fit in cardboard containers)|
