Carving a jack-o'-lanten is a time-honored Halloween tradition. More than 44 percent of Americans say they carve a pumpkin each year. That's a lot of pumpkins!

Go green for a Halloween and compost those spooky gourds. It's easy. Smashing a pumpkin is great stress relief, too! Your garden will thank you!

Single use items are the most wide-spread pollutant in our ocean and waterways. Light weight and easy caught by the wind and currents, those plastic bags, bottles, cups, and wrappers travel great distances when not disposed of correctly. Thank you for doing your part to pick up litter where and when you see it!

We are still working to get all of the yard waste collected. We greatly appreciate your patience.
We get asked, "What's taking so long?" The simple answer is volume.
High volumes of yard debris from and since TS Ian impacted our yard waste collections. Bags were collected on our first pass, with our boom trucks grabbing the large piles of woody debris. We only have 14 yard waste trucks (14 employees) to service 125,000 homes. These drivers are heading into their 4th week of working 7 days a week.
As a reminder, If you have small woody debris piles - please bag and toss in your trash cart. We're coming and thank you again for your patience and kindness.

Virginia Beach resident and dedicated volunteer, Walter Camp, was recognized as Outstanding Adult Volunteer at the awards ceremony which was held at the Executive Mansion on October 25th, 2022.

An able teacher and vigorous volunteer, Walter logged over 1,400 volunteer hours in 2021-22. A useful citizen with a gifted mind and generous heart, Walter serves for the betterment of our beloved city. No matter the Board or the Commission in which he is serving on or the waterway or open space he cleans- Walter's impact is felt and seen with everything he does.

From all of us at Public Works Waste Management, the VB Clean Community Commission, and Keep Virginia Beach Beautiful - We congratulate you, Walter!

Balloons seem innocent enough but they are actually one of the most problematic and abundant types of debris found in our waterways. Remember- what goes up, must come down. If memorializing a loved one- consider planting a garden or a tree rather than releasing a balloon.

10/25/2022

Plastic bottles are a single-use plastic, a product designed to be used only once and then discarded. Improperly disposing of plastics can have a negative impact on our clean and healthy waterways. Know where to throw. All plastic bottles can be recycled. Even better- opt for a refillable bottle and take advantage of some of the cleanest tap water in Virginia! You’ll save money and lessen your impact on the waste stream.

10/25/2022

Whether you are looking to buy or looking to sell- litter has an impact on property values. This is why community involvement is so vital to the overall cleanliness of our communities. Picking up litter on your morning walk, getting your HOA or Civic League engaged in litter clean-ups, or just maintaining your property can have a great impact on the overall health of our environment and longevity of your community.

10/24/2022

Ci******es are the most littered item on earth. Worldwide, about 4.5 trillion ci******es are littered each year. Ci******es make up more than one-third—nearly 38 percent—of all collected litter. Since 2002, the City of Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation has partnered with Keep America Beautiful to install cigarette litter stands across the city. Help keep our communities clean by putting waste in its place.

10/24/2022

City Council designated October as Fall Clean-Up Month as a way to promote volunteerism and beautification projects throughout Virginia Beach. This week, Waste Management and Keep Virginia Beach Beautiful will focus on ways that everyone can help to keep our communities clean and our waterways healthy and beautiful!

10/12/2022

We appreciate your patience as we work hard to get your yard waste collected. The high volume of leaves and branches from TS Ian has greatly impacted our ability to provide same day service. Crews continue to work 7 days a week and are utilizing boom trucks (for piles of woody debris) and manual collection for bagged yard waste. Since the storm- we have collected 1300 tons of yard debris- this is 3x the normal amount.
Though it may seem that we forgot you- we have not. We'll be coming through soon!

10/11/2022

Attention: The Landfill and Resource Recovery Center will be closed until further notice. Equipment repairs and scheduled maintenance are necessary for us to continue to provide our residents with unlimited access to the City's landfill. We will update once it reopens but residents can expect this closure through next week.

During this time, Virginia Beach residents can continue to utilize the SPSA Landtown Transfer Station. Located at 1825 Concert Drive the transfer station is open for a wide range of disposal needs. Please note- this location does not accept any tree trunks, stumps, electronics, recycling, nor Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). Hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – noon.

10/06/2022

Thank you for your patience as our crews work hard to get your yard debris collected. We will be running trucks through the weekend.

Tuesday's area alone saw our crews collecting 400 tons of yard debris from Ian's visit. Because of tonnages like this- we are running one full day behind on yard waste service.

What you can do to help:
Small branches/twigs can be bagged and placed in your trash cart. If they fit in there- you have our permission to put them in there!

Woody Debris: Pile it high and keep it in one or two piles. This helps our boom trucks to get that scooped up.

Obstacles: Make sure nothing is blocking our access of those bags and that woody debris.

The Landfill and Resource Recovery Center and the Landstown Transfer Station are both options for residents wanting to manage their yard waste themselves or if you have items that exceed our regulations.

10/04/2022

Our yard waste crews and boom operators spent a large part of yesterday working to get yard debris up in those low-lying areas along the Lynnhaven.

A few reminders- Regulations are not being lifted but we are willing to relax them to allow for residents to clear their yards. This means - make the most use of the two pile limit. Limbs cannot exceed 4 feet in length but we are able to utilize our boom trucks for piles higher than 4 feet. We'd prefer one or two large piles over multiple tiny piles. If limbs are small enough to go in your trash cart, then bag them and place them in there. Just make sure the lid closes.

Please be careful and heed all warnings associated with this.

10/02/2022

Based on the weather forecast and the possibility of tidal flooding- the City of Virginia Beach will shift to essential personnel only beginning at noon Monday, October 3.

Please make sure you are not blocking storm drains or inlets with yard debris bags or with piles of woody debris. All yard waste should be forward of the water flow line or on your lawn as to not impede the flow of water to your storm drains.
Stay safe friends!

If your weekend plans have changed to include yard cleanup then you may find this reminder handy. Yard debris service is collected on your normal service day. No need to call for a special pick-up (unless we miss seeing it).
Since more rain is expected Sunday - please keep those clear bags and woody debris out of the water flow line so that the rainwater has access to stormdrains.

As of 8:00 a.m. there are no delays in collections, the Landfill and Resource Recovery Center and the WM office are both...

As of 8:00 a.m. there are no delays in collections, the Landfill and Resource Recovery Center and the WM office are both open. West Neck Recycling Center is closed.

If the Landfill is on your to-do list today- We suggest going this morning as high winds will force its closure.

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!
