I am possibly moving to the area, but was shocked to find out there is no recycling program in Smyth County, VA. Does anyone know why? Have there been any efforts to change this? I guess it took it for granted that everyone recycles these days.

Yes we do have some recycling, BUT what about the thousands of veg., soup, & etc cans we don't have recycling for. And what happened to the glass recycling we did have? I do recyle the alum. cans, newspapers, & the plastics. BUT we could do more... Recycle recycle recycle!!!

The reason there's no recycling is economics. It costs more than you get back. Period. You think you can make a go of it? Rent a pce and have at it. Don't use my tax dollars to put us further in the financial hole just to be trendy. Recycle what makes money.

I feel guilty because we don't recycle as we should. A land fill is not the answer and only creates more problems later on. Get with it Anything County.

Like I said, if you want to recycle, have at it. Don't use my tax money to pay for your utopia. If they can't at least break even, then landfill it.

It's Smyth.....not Smythe. And the answer should be....why the Hell do we make stuff that it don't pay to recycle.

Real cute. And where do you live?
Seriously...man we are the future voices of the county. We may not think it's important now... But it really is! Some of us plan to live here the rest of our lives. I sure want to be able to fish for fish and not trash. I want my kids to be able to enjoy the outdoors without worry! It's up to ALL of us!!

Who says Smyth County don't recycle????? The meth heads are recycling plastic bottles into shake and bake labs!!! That's some real progress for this area.

My grandpa owns a recycling center called fort mystery recycling and truth teller must not know the truth on this one almost 40 percent of all metal youvsee is recycled and plastic if not more hes been doing it ove 40 years and theres alot of money coming from it he makes 3 to $5,000 a week in and out of profit not including the money that flows back into the business so research about your facts before you post somthing you obviously do not know nothing about
