NOTICE – Change to Materials Accepted for Recycling

Effective 10/14/19, Wise County will no longer accept plastic for recycling at any of our convenience centers.  This change in our recycling program was made because of the closure of the recycling company that accepted these materials.  We have worked for the past few months to identify new recycling companies in the region that would accept our plastic, but have been unsuccessful.  Wise County is continuing to look for possible new markets for our recyclables in hopes of offering plastic recycling to our citizens again in the future.  The following is a list of the materials that Wise County is currently accepting for recycling at our convenience centers: 

Newspaper & Magazines
Rubber Tires
Metal Appliances

Wise County also accepts all Electronic Waste such as computers, printers, flat screen monitors and tvs, and copiers for recycling at the Josephine Convenience Center in Norton.

At their Jan. 10, 2019 Regular Meeting, the Wise County Board of Supervisors adopted the 2015 Virginia Maintenance Code – Part III of the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code (effective Sept. 4, 2018) for Wise County.  Full text of the Code is available for download --> HERE.
