VCRS is a drop off facility for your sorted recyclables. Your time and effort to sort is what makes this program possible. Please refer to guidelines for each category. Questions are welcome. Manufacturers are making something new with the recyclables you drop off at VCRS. Help us help them have great material to work with by making sure your recyclables are empty, clean, and put in the right place when you drop them off with us.
