Virginia Beach to Resume Trash and Recycling Collections on Feb. 19

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Waste collection will resume on Thursday beginning with the Tuesday collection routes, and continuing with each collection area as needed until collections for the week are completed.  Crews will collect on Saturday and Monday as needed to complete all routes. 

There are still large amounts of ice on the city streets, so collections will be slow.  Neighborhoods with heavy tree cover and icy conditions may be delayed until conditions improve. 

Residents are asked to place their trash cans at the curb line and leave them there until they are serviced. Normal yard debris and bulk item collections are suspended for the week of February 17-21 and will resume next week.

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