Solid Waste

Smyth County operates a solid waste transfer station to accommodate the non-hazardous solid waste disposal needs of its residents, businesses and industries.

Smyth County's transfer station is located in the western portion of the county. The transfer station is a facility where solid waste is unloaded and temporarily stored until it is reloaded onto large transport vehicles for shipment to a balefill in Bristol, Virginia.

The County manages eleven staffed convenience stations located throughout the County for use by citizens. Convenience stations allow citizens to drop off both household trash and recycling. The County does not charge residents to use these facilities. 

The Towns of Marion, Chilhowie and Saltville provide curbside collection within their incorporated limits.
