Curbside Recycling Collection

Curbside recycling is available to residents who are customers of Kelley’s Garbage Collection Service, Kessler Garbage Service, and County Waste. Residents who live in these two service areas who would like to use the curbside recycling service can do so by calling the hauler for their area to be added to the recycling route.

Botetourt County thanks Kelley’s Garbage Collection Service, Kessler Garbage Service, and County Waste for their commitment to our community by providing curbside recycling collection.
