Virginia Beach will be focusing on picking up trash in the wooded lot between 17th Street and 19th Street, next to North Birdneck Road. 

The City will be working with the Virginia Beach Clean Community Commission, Keeping Virginia Beach Beautiful,, Keep Virginia Beautiful, and Keep America Beautiful to continue building an even cleaner, more sustainable city.
