Radford will no longer accept plastics #3-#7, no Styrofoam and no plastic bags, beginning July 1, 2018 at the recycling drop centers located on Seventeenth Street and 200 George Street. The recycling changes come from the Chinese market issuing a ban on the import of 24 types of solid waste, which is affecting recycling nationwide. Currently China takes 35% of United State recyclables, but there is a 25% contamination rate in these products. Chinese officials are requiring there to be a contamination rate of only .5% on recycled materials imported into China. Standardized signs on the bins will communicate which materials will no longer be accepted. Questions regarding the changes can be directed to Public Works at 540-731-3605.
STARTING JUNE 1, 2018
