Trash Center Hours & Locations

Convenience centers are located throughout the county for residents to dispose of household trash and recyclables free of charge.

When using any of Hanover County’s convenience centers for trash disposal and recycling, a Hanover County, Ashland, or public works decal must be displayed.  Before obtaining a public works decal, your vehicle must be registered with the Commissioner of the Revenue in Hanover County.  This can done in person or online.  After your vehicle is registered with the County, decals may be obtained at the Hanover County Treasurer’s office, or you may visit any of the solid waste convenience centers.  When visiting a convenience center to obtain a public works decal, you must show an attendant a document with your Hanover County address, such as a Virginia driver’s license or vehicle registration.  Multiple vehicles per household may be registered; simply bring the documentation with you when visiting a convenience center with an additional vehicle.

This orange sticker is not meant for the outside of vehicle. Most will display it on the backside of their rear view mirror so that the attendant can see it as they pull into the center. Some may put it on cards placed on the dashboard when entering the center.

If your vehicle will not be registered with Hanover County other accommodations will need to be arranged. In this instance, please call the Department of Public Works at (804) 365‐6181 for available options.
