Landfill & Recycling

SPECIAL NOTICES

The St. Luke Convenience Site (4193 Back Rd.) has closed permanently.

After several weeks of negotiations with representatives of the landowners of the St. Luke convenience site, we were unable to reach a mutually agreeable arrangement. The site, unfortunately, is now closed. Signs have been posted at the site to announce the closure and direct users to other convenience sites. The County is looking at alternate locations within the area for consideration as a possible new site to service the community.  However, this process is dependent on many factors and no timeline is available at this time.

Medication Drop-Off at Sheriff’s Office

The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office is now accepting discarded medications. This disposal method is preferable to burying the medicine in the landfill, and much better than flushing it down the toilet (fish don’t react well to people medicines). A permanently mounted metal box for medication disposal has been set up in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office. If you have unused or expired medication (no liquids, sharps, or inhalers please) deposit them any time. No information is taken at the time of drop off.
