Citizen Convenience Sites


Recycling CenterWarren County offers five citizen' locations throughout the County to dispose of household waste and recycle. Bagged household waste may be disposed of at all locations, while large, bulky items other than scrap metal must be taken directly to the Bentonville Site. Recycling centers are available at all locations with the exception of the Shenandoah Farms Compactor site. Please note that all loads should be secured to prevent littering accidents. Site attendants are required to inspect all loads and enforce Warren County Policy.

A valid Warren County, Town of Front Royal, or Waste Decal must be displayed (permanently affixed) in order to dispose of waste and/or recycling materials. Town of Front Royal residents may show a valid vehicle registration. Since the refuse sites are funded by the tax payers of Warren County, those bearing out-of-area decals will not be permitted to use the facilities without a permission letter from the Solid Waste Department. The department issues permission letters on a case-by-case basis in order to limit misuse. You can fill out a Special Permission Request Form and submit it through this website, or you can contact our Administration Office located in Suite 100 of the Warren County Government Center, 540-636-1543. If you need assistance in filling out the request, please view the Instructions and Frequently Asked Questions (PDF).
