Residential Refuse Decal Program - Effective 5/1/2021

Effective May 1, 2021, residents of Spotsylvania County that wish to dispose of household trash and recycling at any of the County's convenience centers, or the Livingston landfill, must obtain and permanently display a residential refuse decal to enter the facilities. There is no cost to the taxpayer for the decal. Decals will be issued as permanent decals for up to a maximum of five vehicles that the resident will use at the sites.  

How do I get the refuse decal?

Residential Refuse Decals may be obtained through the Spotsylvania County Treasurer's office by online application form, mail-in application, or in person. The Treasurer's office will verify each request in order to issue decals to a resident or real property owner of Spotsylvania County. Decals will not be issued to commercial and business vehicles.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, residents are encouraged to apply online or by mail.  

To submit the application online, use this online application form.

To use the mail-in application, please print, complete, and mail to:

If you submit the application by mail or online, your decals will be mailed to you after the Treasurer's office has verified and processed the information.
