The City of Bristol Department of Public Works will be maintaining a regularly updated information feed to which residents can subscribe to receive updates and links to published news articles regarding the solid waste facility.

The City of Bristol also would like to engage residents to help us better identify the areas of concern regarding the issues at the solid waste facility/landfill. We welcome constructive feedback that will help the city provide for greater quality of life for all of us that call Bristol home.


The City of Bristol Virginia Public Works Department operated a quarry landfill, which is now closed as of September 9, 2022, and is no longer accepting any waste.  

The current Bristol Landfill began operation in 1998. The landfill did receive about 175,000 tons of waste per year.
