Litter Control Initiatives

NEW! Request a Road Cleanup Form

Please use this form to indicate that a road is in need of cleanup. This will help us get a clearer picture of problem areas and better allocate resources. Please be aware that resources are limited, and while we will attempt to address all submissions; submission of this form does not guarantee a cleanup.

Litter Response Team Volunteer Interest Form - COMING SOON

As we are working to allocate resources to address littered roads, we often need additional support. To that end, we are working on the creation of a volunteer group known as the Litter Response Team. This group of volunteers would be contacted if additional support was needed to clean up a road. If you would like to be a part of this group, please complete the above form (coming soon).

Upcoming Programs & Events:

Electronics Recycling Event - May 8, 2021

The Orange County Landfill, Rappahannock Goodwill Industries, and the Orange County Litter Control Committee will be hosting a free electronics recycling event on Saturday, May 8, 2021. The event will run from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at the Orange County Landfill, located at 11350 Porter Road, Orange, Virginia.  This event is an opportunity for Orange County citizens to responsibly discard of unused electronic devices. Items accepted generally include most items that plug into the wall or accept batteries.  Examples of acceptable items include: computers, computer monitors, modems, copiers & printers, telephone equipment, fax machines, wires & cables, circuit boards, video game systems, VCRs & DVD players (and other similar entertainment devices), small appliances, and much more. However, please be aware that neither large appliances nor televisions of any kind will be accepted.  To be clear, TV’s cannot be taken at this event for recycling, regardless of whether a television is the older projection style or a more recent flat-screen style.  Unfortunately, they cannot be accepted at this event due to a lack of recycling opportunities for televisions.
