Special Wastes Guidelines

Construction Waste

As of January 1, 2011, the Lively Woodyard no longer accepts construction waste. Residents may take construction waste to County collection points instead. Commercial firms/Contractors are required to make their own disposal arrangements. Stumps, wood, brush, leaves and other yard waste will continue to be accepted at Lively Woodyard. Contact the County Administrator's Office, 8311 Mary Ball Road, Lancaster, Va 22503, 804-462-5129 if questions arise.

Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics Waste Collection

Lancaster County sets aside two days each year for the collection of household hazardous wastes and electronic wastes. The most recent collection day was September 17, 2016 when Lancaster County citizens disposed of 10,137 pounds of household hazardous waste and 5,313 pounds of e-waste.

The next Hazardous Waste Collection Day is tentatively scheduled for late Spring, 2017.

Wood Debris/Brush/Yard Waste

On September 1, 2003, Lancaster County closed its wood debris collection area at the Refuse Collection Site on Regina Road (VSH 604).
