Richmond, VA


Abstract

Richmond, the capital of Virginia, has something for everyone, including recycling. It is among America’s oldest major cities. Patrick Henry, a U.S. Founding Father, famously declared “Give me liberty or give me death” at its St. John’s Church in 1775, leading to the Revolutionary War.

Enviroperks, The Program


The City of Richmond is not only the capital of Virginia but it’s the center of the Richmond Metropolitan Statistical Area. And for good reason! Richmond has something for each of its residents and for its visitors!

Richmond is part of the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority, so Richmond residents can find much-needed recycling information on the CVWMA-Richmond page. Recycling in Richmond is every other week and you can look up your collection day and week right here. If you need a reminder emailed to you about your recycling collection day, use the collection reminder tool found in your EnviroPerks My Account page.

Local, Green, Made in the USA, and National businesses!

EnviroPerks is all about your community, saving you money every day, and helping you live a greener lifestyle! We want to make your world greener and support your local economy, therefore we partner with local businesses that you know and love, encouraging residents to shop local. In addition to the awesome local businesses we partner with, we provide you with access to exclusive discounts with our national partners as well as national discounts and money back through access to our BenefitHub Loyalty+ platform.

Recycling carts are GREEN with a BLUE LID.
