If you use the trash & recycling centers in New Kent County, you will see a few changes, effective July 1, 2022.
Many counties charge their residents an additional surcharge to utilize the locality’s trash and recycling centers. New Kent County is committed to keeping the centers open at no additional costs to residents and are standardizing the days and hours of operation at all sites. All four sites will be open Tuesday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. This means all sites will be closed on Mondays. The trash & recycling centers holiday schedule remains the same – sites are only closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. In cases of inclement weather, the sites will follow County offices closures.
The County will be transitioning e-cycling from the Route 618 (main trash & recycling center) to semi-annual events sponsored by the New Kent Clean County Committee. Residents can expect e-cycling events twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall.
- Did you know? New Kent County has four trash & recycling centers that County residents can use at no additional charge to dispose of their household trash & recycling. Here’s what’s accepted and what is not.
- Did you know? The trash and recycling facilities are open to New Kent County RESIDENTS ONLY. Proof of residency will be required. All residents attempting to use the centers must present to the attendant a valid driver’s license or have a refuse and recycling decal (pictured here) affixed to their vehicle. Those failing to produce a valid driver’s license or proof of county residency will not be permitted to use the facilities. The decal must be placed on the vehicle either by the resident or by the attendant while still at the site. It can be placed at either of the following locations: 1) exterior windshield to the right of the inspection sticker (placed by refuse attendant) or 2) back of the rearview mirror (placed by resident only). Those who prefer not to place a decal on their vehicle may show their driver’s license each time they visit a New Kent County refuse center.
