HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - As Tropical Storm Isaias nears coastal North Carolina and Virginia, cities around Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina are changing their trash collection schedules.

Due to severe weather associated with Tropical Storm Isaias forecast to impact our area on Tuesday, August 4, Public Works Waste Management will postpone curbside trash and recycling collection by one day this week. Tuesday collection routes will begin on Wednesday, August 5.

Residents should NOT place bins at the curbside until at least 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 4. Due to the delay in collection, residents should leave bins at the curbside until trash and recycling is collected.
