Waste Collections Delayed Due to Sandy Debris

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Because of Hurricane Sandy, yard debris is unusually heavy this week throughout Virginia Beach.   Waste collection crews were not able to complete the Tuesday pick-up route because of the heavy volume.   Tuesday’s route should be completed Wednesday, and crews will then begin the normal Wednesday route. 


The Wednesday route is also heavily treed, so crews expect heavy amounts of yard debris.  Along with the delay in starting the Wednesday route, that most likely means the Wednesday route will not be completed by the end of the day. 


Thursday and Friday collection areas are typically lighter, which will give crews an opportunity to catch up, but Saturday collections will likely be needed based on current projections.
