HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - Recyclops, a private recycling company and environmental firm, is coming to Harrisonburg.

Recyclops provides curbside recycling to municipalities that don’t provide their own to residents, or that have had to get rid of their service. The company is like Uber for recycling and hires drivers to use their own vehicles to pick up customer’s recycling bags at their homes and take them to drop-off centers.

They make pickups every other week and do all the sorting for you.

Recyclops said that Harrisonburg residents showed great interest in the program, which is what brought them here.

“Harrisonburg has a wonderful track record of participation of their residents in the program and also they had a pretty good handle on contamination,” said Dennis Wise, Recyclops’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development.

Contamination refers to putting things in recycling bags that shouldn’t be there.

The company will also be coming to Staunton and Waynesboro in the near future. You can sign up for the service online here.
