Recycling involves the separation and collection of materials for processing and
remanufacturing into new products, and the use of the products to complete the cycle.
Money earned from the sale of recyclable materials and tip fees from the Material
Utilization Center helps Rivanna Solid Waste Authority to offset operating costs for area
recycling. In addition, recycling allows you to reduce your own waste disposal costs.
Whether you utilize RSWA's tagbag program, participate in the City of Charlottesville's
programs, or use one of Albemarle County's many private haulers, by simply reducing
the amount of garbage you throw away you save money.
