Virginia Beach Cancels Waste Pickup for Tuesday, Feb 17

Monday, February 16, 2015

Due to the anticipated hazardous road and weather conditions, Public Works/Waste Management has CANCELLED trash and recycling collections for Tuesday.  Collections will resume as soon as conditions allow, most likely on Wednesday.  Collections will slide into the next day, beginning with the normal Tuesday collection area being collected on Wednesday, Wednesday collections on Thursday, and continuing as needed to complete collections for the week.​

Once collections have resumed, residents will be asked to place their black trash can and blue recycling carts at the curb line on their regular collection day and leave them there until they are serviced.

Yard debris collection has been suspended for the remainder of the week. Additional requests for bulky item collection will be re-scheduled for next week.

The Virginia Beach Landfill and Resource Recovery Center will follow the City of Virginia Beach operating hours. 

For updates about collections, call Public Works Waste Management at 385-4650 or visit
