HAMPTON ROADS, Va. — With Hurricane Florence set to impact the Hampton Roads area, some cities have made changes to their waste management pick up schedules due to the weather on the way.

Below are the changes are plans for waste collection for the seven cities:


There will be no trash or recycling collections, Thursday or Friday this week. Residents whose collections are on Thursday or Friday will receive their next normal pickup on Sept 20 or 21, weather/conditions permitting.


Solid waste collection in Hampton has been suspended for Thursday and Friday. Residents should not take their containers or bulk trash to the curb, where high winds would likely cause them to blow over. Any trash containers left at the curb should be removed.

Public Works will resume trash collection on Saturday. Thursday and Friday customers should put their trash toters and bulk items at the curb late Friday, as collections will begin very early on Saturday. There will be no recycling pickup, as the facility that processes Hampton’s recycling is unable to reopen this weekend.

Newport News

Solid waste (trash, recycling and bulk waste) will not take place on Wednesday, September 13, and will instead be picked-up on Monday, September 17. Next week’s regular collections will be delayed one day (i.e., Monday’s collections will take place on Tuesday, Tuesday’s on Wednesday, ETC.).


The city will collect household trash, but TFC Recycling canceled Friday recycling collection. All bulk and yard waste suspended through Friday, Sept. 14


All Waste Management services – trash, bulk, and recycling collections – will be canceled from 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11th, until further notice.


The City of Suffolk Public Works Department will be picking up trash as scheduled on Friday, September 14. TFC Recycling, the City’s recycling provider, will not be providing pick-up and this collection will not be rescheduled.

Virginia Beach

The City of Virginia Beach Waste Management Division will collect trash only on Thursday, September 13 from its Thursday routes.

Collections will remain suspended on Friday, September 14. Friday collections will take place for trash only on Monday, September 17. There will be no collection of recycling, yard debris or bulky items for these two service dates.

Provided roads are clear, trash, recycling and yard debris collections will remain unchanged for the remainder of the next week.

High winds are expected. Please make sure that all material is inside the cart with lids closed tightly. Residents are urged to place their trash container outside of the drainage flow line (a few inches away from the curb) to keep the drainage flow line clear and avoid neighborhood flooding.

Please Note: The Virginia Beach Landfill and Resource Recovery Center will be closed Thursday and Friday. The Landfill will reopen on Monday from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. before resuming its normal hours. Residents can call (757) 385-1980 for Landfill closure information.
