Virginia Beach City Landfill to Be Closed on Mondays

Thursday, February 23, 2012

The Virginia Beach Landfill will be closed on Mondays beginning Monday, March 19, 2012.  It will continue to operate on Tuesday through Saturday from 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

“Going from six days per week to five days per week still provides residents of Virginia Beach substantial access to landfill disposal,” said John C. Barnes, Waste Management Administrator.  “It allows us to consolidate staff and reduce our costs of the landfill while continuing to exceed regulatory requirements.”

The City Landfill is a municipal solid waste facility that is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). The landfill allows disposal of residential waste, including a household hazardous waste and metals recycling facility, along with yard waste and recycling drop off.

For additional information, please contact Steve Uperti, Landfill Superintendent, at (757) 385-1981, or Linda Minner with Waste Management, at (757) 385-8595.
