This page needs updates

A new user has indicated there needs to be updates to this page. I've reached out and will work with this person to get it up to speed using facts. This may result in some information being reduced. There's a possibility this doesn't need an infobox, for instance. It may also result in a need to update all solid waste articles on the site. I look forward to the conversation. --Seantubbs (talk) 19:01, 30 December 2021 (EST)

I removed the following because the information is dated, and the language was not neutral. --Seantubbs (talk) 09:00, 31 December 2021 (EST)


Critics of Van der Linde Recycling say that recyclables are contaminated when they are not separated.[1] Indeed, van der Linde competitor Allied Waste - which manages Charlottesville's source-separated curbside recyclables - has adopted the slogan "separate, don't contaminate." Peter van der Linde admits that contamination occurs, but argues that this is also true for other forms of recycling. The MRF's recovery rate is increasing.[2] Others point out that when Charlottesville residents separate their recyclables from their trash and place it on the curb for free collection, the materials are taken to a transfer station in Ivy and then transported 87 miles to an MRF in Chester, Virginia.[3]
