Waste Management

Waste Management impacts Virginia Beach residents' lives in many ways as we're constantly working to make your life and your city better for you.

Waste Management Collection Updates

Christmas Tree Collection
    • Live-cut Christmas trees are collected as regular yard waste on your normal service day.  Trees must be curbside and free of their stand, tinsel, lights, and ornaments. Trees collected curbside are landfilled.
    • Virginia Beach residents can repurpose their live-cut Christmas tree by taking it to the City's Landfill and Resource Recovery Center. Located at 1989 Jakes Sears Rd, trees will be chipped and used by City Landscape crews. Trees must be free of their stand, tinsel, lights, and ornaments. 
    • A few local businesses and some military installations are accepting live-cut trees for dune restoration programs.  Check local media outlets for more information on these donation program.
