New Recycling Rules

Effective immediately Prince William County has imposed the following restrictions for recycled material on Charlie and Son, our trash and recycling hauler and, accordingly, on us as users of their services. For more information on the County’s decision please refer to http://www.pwcgov.org/news/pages/Immediate-Changes-to-Recycling-in-the-County.aspx

Acceptable recyclable materials

  • Clean #1 and #2 plastic. If uncertain on these codes, search “recycling categories” on the internet. Material must be clean. If not, dispose as routine trash. Charlie & Son will not clean for you.
  • Clean aluminum and tin
  • Mixed paper to include newspapers and cereal boxes.
  • Cardboard, but no section larger than 2’ x 2’. Must be able to fit in recycle bin.
