Loudoun County offers a number of recycling programs as well as our Recycling Guide, which outlines items that can be recycled through curbside recycling and at the county’s recycling drop-off centers. We encourage you to help keep waste out of recycling by consulting information in the guide and on this webpage about whether a specific item can be included in curbside recycling.

Business Recycling Resources

  • Loudoun County offers technical assistance to help businesses implement a successful recycling program.
  • If your business currently receives garbage collection service, your service provider should be able, and in most cases is required, to provide recycling service. 
  • Adding recycling service will reduce the capacity needed for regular trash and may provide an opportunity for a price reduction in your trash bill to offset the cost for establishing the recycling collection service.
