Northampton County
Solid Waste and Recycling Facilities

As a resident of Northampton County, you have improved, staffed solid waste and recycling facilities for your residential waste. The County has constructed manned solid waste and recycling facilities at several locations where you can easily dispose of your residential garbage.
The advantages don't stop there. Attendants are able to answer your questions and offer help as you dispose of trash. The sites are kept clean and neat which control vermin, blowing debris, and help protect the environment. The sites are secured during off hours to control access and unauthorized waste disposals. Safety is enhanced for the residential user. Northampton County is dedicated to providing residents with a clean, safe environment with its new system of staffed solid waste and recycling facilities. Added advantages to this new system include:

  • Open Daily
  • Recycling Services
  • Sites with Easy Access to US Route 13
  • Acceptance of Bulk Items
  • Enhanced Security
  • Cleaner, Healthier Sites
  • Environmental Safety

Recycling Facilities

The sites provide recycling facilities that include acceptance of plastic, glass, newspaper and cardboard, and aluminum, steel cans and food & beverage cartons. Waste oil and vehicle batteries are collected.

Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility


Open year round, each Wednesday & Saturday 10:00am to 2:00pm.

This new facility will operate out of the Accomack County Painter Convenience Center, 16490 Wayside Drive, Painter, and will serve residents of BOTH Accomack and Northampton County.

Centrally located, this new collection facility will be more accessible than the once-a-year, single day program that has been offered for the last fifteen years. The Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection (HHWC) Facility will accept household hazardous waste – NO commercial waste accepted – Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10:00am until 2:00pm.

The facility is expected to accept the following types of household waste. It is important to dispose of these items appropriately, rather than in the general waste stream, in order to protect our ground and surface water, our fisheries, and human health.

Why participate? – household products containing toxic chemicals like pesticides, solvents, cleaning products, & weed killers can be a threat to people and the environment if improperly discarded. Never throw these materials into the trash as the toxic chemicals may harm sanitation workers, or result in fires in collection vehicles. It is also not safe to pour them into a sink, ditch, or storm drain as they can end up in the environment polluting the air, water, or soil.
