Waste Management Crews Continue to Help Residents Recover from Hurricane Matthew

Friday, November 18, 2016

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – November 18, 2016 – Over a month after Hurricane Matthew passed through our region, Virginia Beach Public Works crews continue to collect flood damaged materials. Waste Management is making extra passes through the hardest hit areas to pick up debris from homes.  Residents are still encouraged to call Waste Management at 385-4650 to schedule a pick up and to help ensure that crews are dispatched.

Waste Management asks that residents please bag smaller pieces of drywall and construction equipment into heavy duty trash bags so that crews can collect as much as possible. As a reminder, please do not place any hazardous materials outside as they cannot be collected by crews.​

Crews are working extra days and running extra trucks in order to assist residents impacted by Hurricane Mathew as well as service those neighborhoods not impacted. The community’s understanding and patience is sincerely appreciated as we continue to work to restore normal operations.

Residents are also encouraged to take advantage of the Virginia Beach Landfill and Resource Recovery Center, located at 1989 Jake Sears Road, off Centerville Turnpike.  It is available to Virginia Beach residents for a wide range of recycling and disposal needs.  Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

If you have any questions you may call 385-4650, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., or visit www.vb​gov.c​om/was​temgmt​​​​​​​​
