Curbside Recycling Collection

 

Curbside recycling is available to residents who are customers of either Kelley’s Garbage Collection Service or Community Sanitation Service. Residents who live in these two service areas who would like to use the curbside recycling service can do so by calling the hauler for their area to be added to the recycling route.

Botetourt County thanks Community Sanitation Service and Kelley’s Garbage Collection Service for their commitment to our community by providing curbside recycling collection.
