Virginia Beach, Va. – Go green! Recycling Drop-Off is now available at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.

The new site is located beside the Oceana ball field, 229 First Colonial Road, just south of Virginia Beach Boulevard.

Recyclables accepted are the same as the curbside program: cardboard, paper, metal food containers as well as plastic and glass bottles.

The Oceanfront area had a significant need for improved access to recycling drop-off, with the next closest site over six miles away, according to city officials.

The Resort Area Commission (RAC) G.R.E.E.N. Committee identified Oceanfront recycling as a priority and assisted City staff with the site selection.
