Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Recycling has many benefits including reducing trash disposal costs, conserving natural resources, and it saves space at the landfill. In addition, products produced from recycled materials require less energy for their production than the same items produced from raw materials.
Bluefield has made it easy for citizens to participate in our efforts to make our city a GREEN community...and it's FREE. Thanks to the tremendous growth and positive response from our community, collections of recyclable material are now averaging more than 12 tons per month.
Collection bags are available at City Hall, located at 200 Rogers St. If you are unable to pick up the bags at one of the distribution points, call 327.2456 and we will deliver the bags to you.
Businesses and schools with high volume recyclables are picked weekly on Monday and Wednesday. Businesses with low amounts of recyclables may choose to use the residential pickup schedule (once per month) or a bi-monthly schedule.
Here’s how the recycling program works:
