Crews Work to Collect Heavy Amounts of Storm Debris From Sandy

Thursday, November 08, 2012

Because of Hurricane Sandy, yard debris is unusually heavy this week throughout Virginia Beach.   Yard debris collection crews completed Tuesday’s routes on Wednesday afternoon, then began their Wednesday routes. 


It will take at least another full day to complete all the Wednesday routes throughout the city.  Trash collections and recycling collections are on their normal schedule. 


Because of delays due to the heavy volume of yard debris, staffing adjustments have been made and extra equipment has been added.  Crews will continue to collect through Saturday and possibly Monday, if needed.
