We are expecting severe weather to roll through the area. Please secure bulky items that could become windblown and make sure that lids on trash and recycling carts are securely shut.

Please keep the water flow line clear at the curb. We do not want anything blocking storm drains or the water flow obstructed. Trash cans, yard debris bags and other objects out for collection should be away from the curb or above the curb line.

Should there be any changes or delays in service we will let you know. High winds may cause the landfill to close without warning.

Thank you and stay safe out there!

Contamination can be the ruination of all your recycling... 😳

Simply put, when you put the wrong thing in the recycling bin (or you add something that’s recyclable, but still dirty), it could contaminate the entire contents, sending everything to the landfill rather than to the recycling plant. 🥺

Ack! What do you need to know to avoid this?

🛑When recyclable items are soiled with dirt, food or liquids, it can lead to contamination.

🛑When recyclable materials are put in the wrong bins, it can lead to contamination.

🛑When NON-recyclable items are put in recycling bins, it can lead to contamination.

Are you absolutely certain you’re recycling right?🤷‍♂️

Which basically means, if you’re putting items in the recycling bin that don’t belong there, or that haven’t been emptied or cleaned properly, you could be contaminating the whole bin. 🥺

Let's “Start Smart, Recycle Right” in 2021.

Let’s start with, well, starting smart. It simply means that when you have a choice, choose the product (or the packaging) that can be recycled over the product that can’t. Do you pick the dozen eggs in the Styrofoam™ carton or the cardboard carton? 🥚
Your decision is the “start” of the recycling journey. 🙋‍♀️
Choose right and make the — ahem — over-easy decision. 🍳

Here's a full list of what you can recycle curbside in Virginia Beach:https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/public-works/pw-waste-management/Documents/Curbside%20Recycling/Recycling%20Guide.pdf

In case you missed it, we want to be sure you know about a new program called “Start Smart, Recycle Right.” Starting with starting smart… 🧐(See what we did there?) When you have a choice, choose the product (or the packaging) that can be recycled ♻️over the product that can’t.

For example, when you’re in the grocery store, do you pick the butter in the plastic tub or in the cardboard box?🧈

Your choice is the “start” of the recycling journey.🛣

Happy Sunday Friends!
Recycling Update: Recycling was not serviced for a few Friday neighborhoods. Please have your cart curbside early Monday morning as trucks will be coming through. If your cart has not been serviced by noon, please call our office at 385-4650.

01/08/2021

Recycling Update for Friday, Jan. 8: If your recycling has not been serviced, leave that sad and lonely cart curbside. TFC will be finishing up tomorrow morning.

01/07/2021

Waste Collections for Friday, Jan. 8 will operate on its normal schedule. Recycling for Thursday, Jan. 7 is running on a delay but will be completed Friday morning. Continue to leave those recycling carts curbside and contact our office, after noontime, if you are missed.

01/05/2021

Recycling Update Jan. 5: Recycling service for Friday's residents continues this morning. Once completed, trucks will transition to Tuesday's routes. Tuesday residents can expect delays with service being completed tomorrow.
Due to the high volume of calls, we kindly ask that Friday's residents wait until this afternoon to report if your cart was not serviced. This allows the contractor to complete their routes before we report the miss. Thank you!

01/04/2021

TFC Recycling is continuing to service Thursday customers this morning and will transition to Friday customers once completed. There has been an overwhelming amount of material recycled this holiday season. That extra tonnage puts trucks at capacity quickly and has them emptying more often. We appreciate your patience and understanding as they work to get everyone serviced. Please continue to leave your cart at the curb.

Did yard debris get collected today?
Wanted to say thank you to the drivers and staff manning the trucks today (Saturday). Appreciate the hard work!
We should maybe do this, I'm willing to help, who else??!!!
Are the Friday yard waste collections running on schedule?
I live on Smokey Lake Dr and my recycling bin wasn't emptied. It is loaded with news papers and cardboard. What gives?
Kudos to CVB Public Works Ops for fulfilling two requests I submitted Sunday morning using your VB Works app!! I reported two small pot holes and crews were out already fixing them. 🥰🤩 Thank you
Whoever the driver of this truck was that came into the Westin needs to be on American Idol or the voice.  I don’t think he realized I heard him. This man can sing! Ha!
LISTEN !!!!!!!!!!!!https://youtu.be/cK_eNdcgIOk
Where can I buy replacement trash can wheel for older trashcan? Ace Hardware only carries the newer wheel.
Hi, is lawn waste back to the normal schedule? I don't see this week on the latest calendar. Thank you!
