Convenience Centers

Pittsylvania County has 21 convenience centers and 10 "greenbox" sites spread across the county. Our “Convenience Centers” are waste disposal facilities for our County residents to dispose of residential, household generated waste. They consist of compactor units to handle normal trash and larger open-top containers for large or bulky items. 

Our greenbox sites are located where travel distance to our convenience centers is outside of an acceptable range. We are currently working to develop three additional convenience centers which will allow us to eliminate some greenbox sites that are not as cost effective to maintain and do not provide a great experience for our users. 

A crew of drivers are always on the road, using rolloff trucks to haul trash from these convenience centers back to the Pittsylvania County landfill. Several of the most frequently visited sites are also manned by attendants to ensure that citizens have access to everything they need and to ensure that the sites aren't abused by contractors. For everyone's safety, Pittsylvania County does not permit salvaging, scavenging, or reclaiming items from our convenience centers or greenbox sites.  We regularly monitor these sites for improper usage and violators will be ticketed for illegal use.

All sites have containers for recycle aluminium cans and newsprint. Mt Hermon Collection Center also has a container for cardboard

Annual Solid Waste Collections ExpensesThe operation of these convenience centers is largely funded by the Solid Waste Fee, an annual tax of $120 per household. Without the Solid Waste Fee, Pittsylvania County would be required to either raise taxes or forgo crucial investments in other areas like public safety and education.

Before the Solid Waste Fee was instituted in 2018, many of these convenience centers and greenbox sites were in complete disarray. These sites were created for residential use, but contractors would fill them to the brink, so site attendants have been placed at some of the busiest sites to ensure that every citizen has room to leave their trash.

Pittsylvania County is also working to put in additional sites and improve the level of service offered at the convenience centers. A new, regional convenience center is being developed at Meadow Ridge Court, as well as two more sites on Climax Road and Level Run Road. A new recycling program is being created to allow county residents to easily recycle cardboard and newspaper, among other things.
