The McIntire Road Recycling Center is owned and operated by the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority.


The center opened up at its location at McIntire Road in 1979[1]. The RWSA took over the facility in 1991[1].

Uncertain future

The future of the center is uncertain. In August 2010, the city and county both agreed to amend a document that governs how the facilities operating deficits are to be funded. As a result, neither locality is required to begin contributing to pay for the RSWA's free public services[2] .

City Councilor David Brown said at the August meeting of the RSWA that he supported keeping the facility open in some fashion. City Councilors Kristin Szakos and Holly Edwards both told Charlottesville Tomorrow that they support continuing keeping the facility open[2]. Dave Norris told C-Ville Weekly in September that one possibility would be to let Van der Linde recycling run the center[1].

Hours of operation

Due to budget cutbacks, the center is currently closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

  • Wednesdays - Fridays: 8:30 am - 5:20 pm
  • Saturdays: 9:30 am - 5:20 pm
  • Sundays: 12:30 pm - 5:20 pm

The center is closed on New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, December 24th and Christmas.
