ATTENTION: There seems to be some confusion about the procedure at the landfill.
If you were previously bringing your trash and recycling to the Springfield and Shenandoah convenience sites, you can bring that FOR FREE to the landfill.
Household bagged trash and recycling are accepted; there is no charge. The only change for that is the location. Check in at the scale house and you will be directed on where you need to go.
Our hours are Monday - Saturday, 8 am to 4 pm for residential waste and recycling. If you have any questions, please call 540-743-3854 or email firstname.lastname@example.org ... See MoreSee Less
It was my understanding that the satellite sites were closed due to the inmates no longer being able to help at the landfill and therefore the satellite attendants were needed at the landfill. Don't know how true that is but it's what I was told. I also had to wait at the landfill on Saturday afternoon but it really wasn't that long of a wait even though there were approximately 15 vehicles in front of me. This situation isn't forever people. Have a little patience and understanding. We are all dealing with unusual circumstances.
I emailed the county landfill and was told that the satellites are not considered essential and that the age of the employees was the deciding factor in the shutdown. I don't agree, but must accept what I cannot change.
Should reopen our recycling center!!! They don't have to come out when anyone is there...we need our site!!!
Please reopen the recycling sites asap. The present closings are putting more people at risk.
Took are trash yesterday and only ran into 3 ppl 1 at window and 2 helping at dumpster no charge 4 house hold trash
Please open all the sites back up. It is truly an inconvenience.
You are coming into contact with more people at the landfill than you would have at the other dumping sites where the guy could have stayed in the booth.
The Shenandoah and Springfield sites should be reopened. I have to make a half hour round trip drive to the landfill, plus I sat in a line of cars/trucks for 20 minutes on Friday. It only takes 5 minutes to go to Shenandoah. Also, at Shenandoah, the attendant could stay in the building, when people are there. People could get their own trash from the car/truck. The attendant could only come out when no one was there to check the dumpsters. Also, the attendant could just look out enough to ensure that people were not dumping items that are not allowed. Younger people, who are less at risk, could also be hired as attendants during this crises.
The two men at the landfill who are taking trash out of long lines of cars/trucks are not even wearing protective gear. The virus could be on the trash bags. It would be safer for everyone to reopen the compacter centers. I believe someone in the county thinks they can save money by closing them. I’m 69 years old and making the longer trip to the landfill is difficult for me. Open the compacter sites. At least a couple of days per week. It’s a service for which we pay taxes!
I live 2 miles from the Page/Warren Line. and have to go to the Page landfill unless I get a $20 sticker from warren county.
NOTICE: Page County Government Center will close doors to the public beginning Monday, March 23rd.

Glad to see you are working to reopen the closed recycling/dump sites. I am elderly and it’s all I can do to drive to Shenandoah. My bags of trash are piling up. There are so many big trucks at the landfill, it is daunting for me to go there. You could have the attendant stay in the building, when people are there and come out to check the dumpsters when no one is there. Or...you could open the gates and have an attendant drive by every couple of hours to check on the dumpsters. Having so many people go to the landfill is dangerous for older people, who still have to haul our own trash.
There are now 154 cases in Va. up 38 since Friday.
Following decisions by the President of the United States to proclaim a national emergency and the Governor of Virginia to declare a state of emergency in the Commonwealth of Virginia, in response to the continued spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the County of Page has officially declared a local emergency as of 10:00 a.m. on March 17.
The emergency declaration enables Page County to draw on additional resources to prepare for and coordinate the county’s response to the potential spread of the virus. Specifically, the declaration will allow the county to pursue reimbursements that may be available from the federal and state governments as a result of their declarations, among other response tools.
At this time, there are no confirmed COVID-19 cases in Page County. This declaration does not change any protocols regarding COVID-19. Residents should continue to follow Virginia Department of Health guidelines on prevention. ... See MoreSee Less
The opportunity for federal reimbursements for losses only applies to government agencies. This does not require repayment.
Private sector businesses, many of which are suffering loses as events are being cancelled and distribution systems are being disrupted, will not qualify for reimbursement of losses. A Stimulus package may be coming. This Stimulus package will require repayment.
Now, say “thank you” to the American Public.
This “reimbursement coming from FED and State” is generated by “We, The People” through tax collection. Ditto for Stimulus package.
County offices will remain open for business as long as our employees are healthy and able to work. For the health of our staff and the public, please practice social distancing by conducting business over the phone or online www.pagecounty.virginia.gov when possible.
Effective 3/15/2020, public gatherings have been limited to less than 50 people and social distancing of 5 to 6 feet.

I’m furious about your closing the Shenandoah dump. What poor planning. Not even any notice. Poor government decision. Just leave all of the dump locations open and have someone drive by to check on them. Or let the attendant stay in the building and only come out to check the dumpsters when no one is there. The landfill is extremely difficult for an elderly person like me to get to. You don’t need that many people to line up at the landfill. Very poor decision. You need to think this through. You’re going to have trash thrown out on the roads all over the county.
I am wondering what happens if one ignores this directive? Suppose I am talking to a friend closer than 5 or 6 feet? This is a serious question. How is this to be implemented?
You can tell y’all from page county y’all can’t count!! The president said 10 people or less in gathering lmao I guess y’all don’t care or listen
I know this makes it harder for some people to deal with their trash. But here's something that my neighbors and I have been doing and it works quite well. When I know I'll be making a run to the landfill, I call my neighbors and tell them they can bring their trash over and put it in my truck. That way, only one of us might have to go for a while. They do the same. For our needs, this informal solution has worked well. But consider getting together with several neighbors to do this. Set up an alternating schedule so you take turns. Or if you're disabled, perhaps you could offer a neighbor a few dollars to add your neatly-bagged trash to theirs and they can take it to the landfill. These may not be perfect solutions, but given the current situation, this might ease at least some of the burden.
Please loosen up on your fire ordiancances including town laws... Let people burn their trash. As long as it's done responsibly and houses arent burnt down and forest fires dont start dont say anything or arrest anyone. As soon as its irresponsible and dangerously done, then arrest people if needed. Ecs.
I am very angry about this. I’m elderly and can barely make it to Shenandoah and back. The landfill is a long drive for me. Actually, I’m furious. Just open all of the sites, but have the workers stay inside the little building. Having everyone come to the landfill is a ridiculous and poor decision.
So to protect our Page Co landfill workers are they banning trash from elsewhere??? Our Landfill takes trash from not just other counties but from other states!!! Plus if the close the locations why are they not adjusting the hours for those of us who work out of this county? Saturday’s at the Springfield site is crazy enough I czar imagine what it will be like at the landfill!
This will only cause more disease in the long run with trash piling up. Please reconsider the consequences.
So everyone goes to the Landfill ??? They immune in the Governors decision ?
Government nonsense at its worst!
This makes no good sense have everyone congregate to one spot isnt that what we dont want????

Connectivity Update: Thanks to the many Page County residents that have filled out our internet connectivity survey. The purpose of this survey is to determine speeds and unserved areas because several maps (FCC specifically) are saying Page County is served by multiple providers. We know this is not the case and need your data to make our case. We are not alone and now the National Association of Counties has partnered with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP), the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) and Farm Credit to develop a mobile app designed to identify areas with low or no connectivity.
Follow the information below for the “TestIT” app and help Page County further our efforts in better connecting our community.
BIG NEWS! Congratulations are in order to the amazing staff at the Page County Animal Shelter. For the second year in a row, they’ve been designated “no kill” for maintaining an euthanasia rate of less than 10 percent for 2019, with an overall save rate of 94.6%!! They work with several rescue groups; Cat’s Cradle, Save the Tails, Ragged Mountain Dogs, Humane Society of Warren County, SPCA, to name a few, in order to make this happen. The huge strides the shelter has made are only achievable through the staff’s hard work, dedication and compassion for the animals in their care. If you see Jami, Shelby, Hali, Courtney or Danika, please let them know how much their efforts are appreciated! Thank you, ladies. Another proud day for Page County!! #pagecova#teampageco...

I certainly hope and request that the 2nd Amendment Resolution be passed unanimously !!!
Any resolution needing to use the phrase "slippery slope" to convey a point is pretty embarrassing.
I'd say stand around outside and be heard by chanting!!!!!!
why weren't we told about the Nov 19 meeting before now
The resolution seems pretty vague about what bills are contrary to the 2nd amendment. It merely refers back to the language of the 2nd amendment while ignoring any subsequent interpretation by the courts.
Worse still, it is declaring any measures passed by the upcoming General Assembly as against the 2nd amendment, prior to any legislative process.
Is the BoS really proposing to usurp the role of the courts in interpreting the law? By declaring that the county won’t spend any funds to enforce laws that are contrary to the 2nd amendment, it sure does seem like it. That seems pretty radical and, well, lawless to me.
But here’s the thing: the county knows full well that it is not the authority that gets to determine whether laws are Constitutional. They also know perfectly well that the Democrats in Richmond and Washington aren’t intending to pass measures that are un-Constitutional. So the BoS gets to make its statement, and the people of the county rejoice over this little moment in the culture wars. But they’ll be in for a surprise when they discover that so much of what they think is un-Constitutional - like universal background checks, for instance - are completely valid.
Thanks Coty Young!!!!!!!
Some people must be unaware of standing bills in Richmond. ￼￼A law like this is something that King George III would’ve passed. Not￼￼￼ a free people. This bill would have made Peter Mullenburg in Woodstock a criminal, or Gen. Joseph Warren or some guy named George Washington!! Just saying.
Oh great. so you want to contribute to the theatrics of government. All elected officials jobs are to enforce the law--how about put your efforts into arresting speeders on 340 or dong something about drug use. Sanctuary to evade possible laws? Stupid in the extreme.
Please watch this 1 minute video, of an Asian lady in Georgia, in 2016, successfully chasing away 3 armed home invaders. She emptied her gun doing this. Now imagine what might have happened if she had been limited to 10 rounds or less. Don't ever think this could NEVER happen to you. youtu.be/-_MRVnR6KI8
