Mesmerizing Photos of People Lying in a Week’s Worth of Their Trash

Every week, our Waste Management crews collect trash from 123,000 homes in Virginia Beach and we are here to tell you that you all generate an incredible amount of trash! For the month of June, you all generated 12,387 tons! The average American produces 4.5 pounds of trash a day. That's 31 pounds a week for one person. A family of four will generate 126 pounds a week. Photographer, Gregg Segal, wanted to see what that looked like. His project titled "7 Days of Garbage" provides a visual for our waste tossing habits and allows us to rethink what we buy and what we toss.

Reel In and Recycle! 🎣♻️

Our local waterways are home to a variety of wildlife that count on us to keep their habitat sustainable. If you have unwanted line after fishing, store it safely and securely until it can be placed in a recycling bin. Fishing line recycling containers like these pictured at Rudee Loop are available at city parks with water access. ​Avoid casting near trees, utility lines and other areas where your line may get caught.​ Please help keep our waterways cleaner and safer for fish, birds and marine mammals! 🐟🦢🦦🦆🐬🐢

L💙VE FOR VB.

We specially designed the Forget-Me-Not symbol as a tribute to those we lost and those who were injured on May 31, 2019. If you haven't seen the incredible version that the Park & Landscape Services team created on the side of Mount Trashmore, you should go see it. This video, also available at loveforvb.com, explains the meaning behind the design.

Hi! I just moved to a new construction house in VB and have been trying to call the past few days to purchase trash containers but have been unable to get through (I get disconnected bc of high call volume every time). Any suggestions? Can I order via email?

So this past Wednesday recycling was suppose to be picked up. I reported on SeeClickFix Wednesday afternoon (3:30) usually picked up early. Others emailed, Thursday half of my street was picked up. Friday 8am I called spoke with someone. My seeclickfix was closed. Monday all day has gone by still not picked up.
Are plastic cups like slurpee cups recyclable in VB? What plastics are ok? Thank you.
Would bulk pickup be able to collect a disassembled home gym?
Still working on Thursday routes?
Was recycling cancelled today? Can full of cardboard still at curb. Neighbors can still out as well.
