These centers are for citizens bringing trash and recyclables originating from their residence. All of these centers are staffed full-time to assist any citizen who needs help.

Requirements for Use

The Cumberland Convenience Centers are strictly for residential use. A valid Cumberland County personal property decal on the windshield of the vehicle or a valid driver's license is considered proof that the customer is a resident. Commercial usage of the public use areas is a violation of the County Code and the Virginia Department Environmental Quality (DEQ) Solid Waste Management Regulations.

Hours of Operation


Beginning July 1, 2010, citizens of Cumberland County will have access to Madison transfer station (Courthouse area) seven days a week.   New hours of operation for all stations will be as follows:

Madison Transfer Station     – Monday – Friday - 8-5 
(Cumberland Courthouse location)       Saturday & Sunday – 8-3

Hamilton Transfer Station   – Monday, Wednesday and Friday – 8-5 
(Cartersville location)                           Saturday – 8-3
Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday – Closed

Randolph Transfer Station -   Monday, Wednesday and Friday – 8-5 
(Cumberland Road location)                 Saturday – 8-3
Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday – Closed

We are closed on certain holidays. In addition, to ensure your safety, we do not operate our citizen convenience centers when the County is closed due to inclement weather.

Fees for Usage

There is no cost to Cumberland residents for normal residential trash disposal or recycling. Fees do apply for tire disposal (see below).

Materials Accepted for Disposal

We accept solid waste generated from homes of Cumberland County residents. This material is to be placed directly in the refuse containers.

Items Not Accepted

To protect the health and safety of employees and our customers and also protect the environment, there are certain items that we cannot accept:

  • Automotive or other lead acid batteries (may be recycled at retailers that sell automotive batteries)
  • Hazardous items
  • Pesticides or other farm chemicals
  • Explosives or ammunition
  • Oxygen, propane tanks or other pressurized tanks
  • Used oil (may be recycled at retailers that sell motor oil)
  • Oil based paint, gasoline and thinners 
  • Hot ashes or cinders 


Due to the advent of individually packaged products intended for a single use such as water bottles, soda cans and snacks, we have exponentially grown our rate of trash production. These products are convenient for a population on the go, but they are also filling our landfills faster than ever. Recycling is an easy, common-sense way to divert many of the materials from the landfill, while also saving energy, money and slowing down our natural resource consumption. The county provides bins at each convenience center that allows the citizens of Cumberland the opportunity to recycle various items such as metal, plastic and paper. 


Recycling Information:

Wheels for Wishes Wheels For Wishes is a car donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish® Greater Virginia. We are proud to offer an easy way to recycle or donate unwanted cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs, RVs, or even boats, by turning them into a wish for a local child.

Appliances that do NOT have a compressor (washers, dryers, stoves, hot water heaters, microwaves, and dishwashers) can be brought to any convenience center. Appliances with compressors (refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners) can only be brought to the Madison District Transfer Station.



Only paint cans that are empty or containing dried paint can be brought to the convenience centers. Water based (latex) paint can be dried by leaving the lid off or absorbing the wet paint with kitty litter.
