The Bedford County Landfill operates a transfer building for convenient drop-off of solid waste for residential and commercial customers.

Yard debris, leaves, stumps (please call for rates on disposal of stumps), etc. are collected in our wood waste area.

Recycling of mixed paper and cardboard are accepted at our new Materials Recovery Facility.

Household Hazardous Waste & Electronic Waste Disposal.

Bedford County has started collecting used cell phones, used alkaline and used rechargeable batteries at all staffed and gated collection centers. All alkaline batteries will be disposed of through our Household Hazardous Waste program. The rechargeable batteries will be sent out for recycling to a company called RBRC that will recover the metals (nickel, iron, cadmium, lead and cobalt) and prepare them for use in new products such as batteries and stainless steel. Cell phones are refurbished, recycled or resold when possible.
