Christmas Tree Recycling in Crozet

View Christmas Tree Recycling in Charlottesville-Albemarle in a larger map Basically, we’re taking our Christmas trees – sans lights and stands – to Crozet Park or Greenwood Community Center. … As in the past, the Albemarle County Parks & Recreation Dept will host its annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program beginning December 26, 2009 through January 16, 2010. … Shortly after the City’s curbside pick up, the County and City Parks & Recreation crews will team up to chip the estimated 2600 trees at Darden Towe Park. … The sites are as follows : – Chris Greene Lake in Earlysville – Crozet Park – Darden Towe Park – Greenwood Community Center * – Rivanna Solid Waste Authority Recycling Center on McIntire Road (*note: Sunday hours are 12noon – 5pm) – Scottsville Community Center – Walnut Creek Park The recycling location on McIntire Road may be congested; please consider Darden Towe Park as an alternate location that is less congested and is suited better for large loads and contract haulers.

Update on Recycling in Crozet

When I spoke last spring to Tom Frederick about the opening of the center in Fluvanna who can take all recyclables for 49 a ton, I asked why we cannot use their facility until we have the money to do something ourselves. … RWSA Bulky Waste and Household Hazardous and Business Hazardous Waste Amnesty Day — the spring dates when tires, appliances, and household waste can be dumped for free at the landfill have not yet been set, but when they are set they will be available at 3.

Recycling comes to Crozet (sort of)

There has been much discussion, including a poll , about getting Albemarle County to bring recycling to Crozet. Rather than wait , why not use this new service , for twenty dollars a month?

Even more on Crozet recycling

From the CCA:It is critical that we attend the Board of Supervisors meeting on April 4th at 6 PM to voice an opinion on the Recycle Center money staying in the CIP budget and that Crozet be the first selection for a center to maintain Crozet as a sustainable community.  Our arguments should be pointed towards:1) Crozet has the largest population outside the urban ring around Charlottesville (in Albemarle County)2) Albemarle County is committed to making Crozet growth area a sustainable community.3) Environmentally speaking, Albemarle County is committed to protect the environment to guarantee a high quality of life for its citizens….  Please listen to us.” Short speeches are in order, but we need lots or one person making a speech and saying how many folks are there to support the Recycle Center and everyone who supports the concept stand and show an impact on the BOS by numbers of people willing to support.  April 4 – 6:00 PM BOS meeting on the second floor (most likely in the Lane auditorium) Public Hearing April 11 – BOS set rate and approve budget with cuts etc April—–May BOS discuss more of the budget allotments June—-BOS finalize the allotments July 1 Money is available for the different departments as has been approved by the BOS What has been done so far:Crozet Community Advisory Council (14 Crozet community members appointed by BOS have sent a resolution to the BOS to have Crozet selected)Mike Freitas (County public works director has spoken at the CCA and will be at the CCAC April 19th meeting to speak on recycling)Tabor Church has held two recycle meetings and has compiled a list of interested people on getting the center in Crozet (60 names)CCAC has a committee of 4 members working on how the community can help the county to make the recycle center fit the community needs.

Asking for Recycling in Crozet – again

I know I’m not the only one in Crozet who recycles.I know I’m not the only one who schleps a vanload of stuff to the McIntire Recycling Center each week (trying desperately to avoid Saturdays!).And I know I’m not the only one in Crozet who wants a recycling center right here in Crozet.The number one reason I want it, frankly, is to make my own life easier….  Join me–make it impossible to be ignored.From an email from Mr. Freitas:There is currently $250K designated in the CIP for FY2008 (1 Jul 07 – 30 June 08) for the construction of recycling centers that would be located at various locations in the County (Crozet being one of the areas being considered)….  If the money is there, why not Crozet?You may find your voice more efficiently expressed by emailing David Wyant, our Supervisor and Ann Mallek, who is running for the seat currently held by Mr. Wyant….  Areas that are being considered for recycling centers include Crozet, Scottsville, the Pantops area, and the Northern areas of the County.There is a budget work session tomorrow, 14 March at 1pm at the Lane Auditorium and two more after that:Budget Work Session #1 – March 12, 2007 – Lane Auditorium – 1:00 p.m.Budget Work Session #2 – March 14, 2007 – Lane Auditorium – 1:00 p.m.Budget Work Session #3 – March 19, 2007 – Room 235 – 1:00 p.m.Budget Work Session #4 – March 21, 2007 – Lane Auditorium – 1:00 p.m.What would the recycling center look like?
