Improvements at the Boxwood Farm Convenience Center are finished, and the site is now fully operational.

Additions to the location included two trash compactors, one cardboard compactor, and a metal/paper/mixed paper recycling container. Boxwood Farm Convenience Center is the location of the County’s first plastic/aluminum self-contained compactor. The dual compactor has two doors, one for plastic and one for aluminum, and will increase the site’s efficiency by taking up less space than two separate compactors. Located at 2334 Boxwood Farm Road, the center is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. Out of County Trash Permits, for non-county residents, can be purchased through Amherst County Public Works.

Permits are $100.00 and are good for one year. Checks should be made out to Amherst County Public Works. To purchase by mail, send a check and your return address to Amherst County Public Works, 715 Kentmoor Farm Road, Madison Heights, Virginia 24572.
