We remind Albemarle, Charlottesville, and Scottsville residents that paint is now collected on a daily basis at Ivy MUC, so no need to wait until this special collection event. (Note: program is restricted to 1 gallon and 5 gallon latex and oil-based paints in their original containers). This program is a great opportunity to rid homes of hazardous waste like pesticides and cleaners, as well as household bulky waste items like refrigerators, mattresses, furniture, and tires.


Rivanna Solid Waste Authority is dedicated to protecting and improving the environment by providing the recycling, solid waste, and hazardous waste disposal services requested by the City and County. RSWA assists thousands of City and County residents each year with their recycling, solid waste, and hazardous waste disposal needs.
