Curbside Service 

The City of Colonial Heights provides residents with curbside recycling service every other week through the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority. Curbside pickup of recyclable items is scheduled for every other Friday. Visit to view your curbside recycling collection schedule or to sign up for a collection day reminder by email.


The City provides each resident with a 96-gallon recycling container (see image at right). To obtain a second container, please visit or call the Recycling Hotline above. (Additional recycling containers are $65). Residents may also continue to use their old recycling bin in addition to the new 96-gallon container.
