Important:

V.F. Waste Services collects recycling once per week Wednesdays. Please use the recycle bin that has been provided to you for your recyclable materials. You may also use recycle bins that you have in your possession that have been kept from previous recycle providers. The bins must ready for pick up by 7:00 am and must be placed outside your unit by the garage door. The recyclable items must be placed inside the bins and must not overflow. VF Waste will provide 1 – 18 gallon recycle bin to households that have signed up for the recycling program. In addition, each household can add two more of their own containers for recycling similar to our bins. Each additional container may be no more than 20 gallons and must be made of plastic and must be clearly labeled with the word(s) “Recycle” for identification by VF employees. You can purchase an extra recycle bin from us or purchase your own at a hardware store or online. Thank you and we look forward to servicing your community. Any lost, stolen or damaged bins will be replaced at the homeowner’s expense. Bins damaged by VF employees will not be the responsibility of the resident(s).
