The Washed Ashore Traveling Exhibit features collections of intricate, beautifully designed, giant sea life sculptures made entirely of marine debris collected from beaches. Impressive as it is tragic, this event is being hosted by the Norfolk Botanical Gardens now through October 31.

What items do you see in these art pieces?
As a side note: Not a single plastic item that you see here is accepted in your curbside recycling cart but every item you see could have been donated, reused or repurposed.

Please keep the water flow line clear at the curb. With the impending storm 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.

Please secure bulky items that could become windblown and make sure that lids on trash and recycling carts are securely shut. If you have Friday collection we recommend that you do not put your carts/items out until Friday morning (before 7 AM)

TFC will be doing their best to complete today's routes but if your recycling is due to be picked up today and hasn't been serviced by 7 PM tonight we recommend you pull your cart in. We expect the worst of the winds to be this evening. If needed have the cart back out at 7 AM on Friday as TFC will service incomplete areas first thing the next morning if needed.

Should we experience any delays in service we will let you know. Thank you.

Smile, you're on camera!

When the Landfill and Resource Recovery Center is closed anything dumped outside of the gate is illegal dumping and subject to fines.

Regular hours are Tuesday - Saturday 7:00 AM - 4:30 PM. They do close for severe weather and be sure to check the schedule for holidays: https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/public-works/pw-waste-management/Pages/holiday-collection-schedule.aspx

Few municipalities have their own landfills that residents can use at no additional charge. Please, please don't abuse it. Also check the SPSA Landstown Transfer Station on Concert Drive. They are about 15 minutes from the Landfill. Residents get 12 uses of that facility per calendar year for household generated waste.

Recycling company warns people not to recycle lithium-ion batteries after multiple plant fires

Lithium-ion batteries should not go in the trash or recycling bin. We accept those and other household hazardous waste at the Virginia Beach Landfill and Resource Recovery Center at 1989 Jake Sears Rd, 23464 which is open to all Virginia Beach residents Tuesday-Saturday from 7:00 AM - 4:30 PM. Many retailers also accept them. If it is a modern device and it is chargeable, it probably has a lithium-ion battery in it.

Where’s the recycling truck? Driver shortage continues to delay service

Virginia Beach continues to see recycling delays.

Residents should still be receiving recycling collection every other week but collection may occur on a delay. Typically, this is the next morning. Residents should call if their recycling has not been picked up by noon on the day after your scheduled pickup.

As mentioned in this article, we've been meeting with TFC because of these delays and they are tackling their driver shortage from multiple angles to get service back to normal.

A perfect storm slows down trash and recycling pickup in Hampton Roads

Thanks to WAVY TV 10 for reaching out to us about this story.

Recycling delays are probably the subject we currently get messaged about the most. The truck driver shortage, which is being felt nationally, is the biggest obstacle to our recycling contractor. TFC Recycling is urgently hiring drivers if you know of anyone interested: http://www.tfcrecycling.com/employment.html

If you find your recycling not collected at the end of your collection day, leave it out for the next morning. If they are running behind the first thing they do the next day is finish the uncompleted routes from the previous day.

If you find your recycling not collected by noon the day after your collection day, contact us at (757) 385-4650 or [email protected] so that we can get TFC back out to collect it. We appreciate your patience with any delays.

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!
