The Virginia Peninsulas Public Service Authority is having another chemical/computer recycling event on Sept. 12 from 8 a.m. until noon.

It will be on County Drive, off of Goodwin Neck Road.


York and James City County and Williamsburg residents are welcome to participate. The local counties are members of VPPSA.

Residents are asked to stay in their vehicles while staff come by to pick up recycling items. There will be signs posted directing residents to the drop-off site.

Depending on the number of vehicles and amount of items in each one, waiting time may vary, officials said.

The event is specifically for household chemicals and computer items. Up to five gallons of used cooking oil, motor oil, or antifreeze is accepted a day. Tires are $1.50 with the rim removed and $3 with the rim. Additional fees may apply for oversized tires. 

Other items such as household maintenance products, including paints, solvents, glues, varnishes, gasoline, waxes, insecticides, and pesticides, are also accepted. 

Items like televisions and computer components can also be taken to a local Best Buy. Goodwill also accepts an unlimited amount of computer components.

If you have any questions of what items are accepted, you can call VPPSA at 757-259-9850 or go to their website.
