Solid Waste Management Fee

The City of Harrisonburg is required by the Commonwealth of Virginia to recycle at least 25% of total solid waste it receives annually.  Specifically, the Solid Waste Management fee helps subsidize the cost for the recycling program, including but not limited to handling and processing of the total solid waste generated, in order to achieve state and federal mandates. The recycling program has been and will continue to be subsidized with funds from all customers regardless of whether they choose to recycle or not. However, we do encourage all residents and businesses to recycle.
