    A Notice from Patriot Disposal: In the past month we have experienced extremely high levels of contaminated recycle loads due to the use of plastic bags. The use of plastics bags causes many issues, mainly by clogging the machinery at the recycling facilities. Please do not use plastic bags to bundle your recycling or recycle plastic bags all together.

    The practice of removing plastic bags from our local recycling stream will reduce strain on our recycling facilities and landfills. Contamination is the primary reason why recycling is ending up in the landfills. Please help increase our local recycling footprint while reducing pressure on our local haulers and disposal facilities.

    If you have plastic bags to dispose of, The Academies of Loudoun is running a bags for benches drive. if you know a high school student attending the Academies, ask them about it.

    Harris Teeter and Giant each have recycling bins for bags.

    You can also drop your plastic bags off at the recycling center at the county landfill off Evergreen Mills Road during their normal business hours.
