Virginia Beach Waste Management Suspends Friday Collections

Thursday, April 02, 2020

​We have had a positive test in the Waste Collections Operation and to allow time for the Department of Public Health to conduct the necessary trace investigation to determine whether this poses any risks to other employees, all collections will be suspended for one day, Friday, April 3. No additional details will be made available regarding the individual as the City of Virginia Beach will not discuss the medical condition of any employee.

"We are keenly aware of, and regret, the inconvenience this action imposes on our Friday customers," said Mark Johnson, director of Public Works. "In making the decision, we had to weigh the safety of our workforce against this temporary service disruption and considering the unprecedented situation with the pandemic, we hope our customers would agree it is the right thing to do."

Residents that are impacted may utilize the Virginia Beach Landfill and Resource Recovery Center, located at 1989 Jake Sears Road. Normal hours for the landfill are 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Also available is the SPSA Landstown Transfer Station, located at 1825 Concert Drive. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to noon.
