HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) — After one of the most significant snowfalls in recent years, cities across Hampton Roads are rescheduling waste and recycling collection that was postponed earlier this week.

Chesapeake:

Residents whose normal trash and recycling collections are on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday should place their cans at the curb on Friday and leave them there until collections, which will begin Friday and continue Saturday and Monday.

The city says crews will work as quickly as conditions allow and hope to be caught up and back to normal trash collection schedules by Tuesday. However, there may be delays next week. So, the city advises residents to place cans at the curb on your normal collection day (starting next week), and they will be picked up as soon as possible.

Bulk waste and yard waste collection has been suspended until Tuesday.

Hampton:

Trash collection was suspended on Wednesday and Thursday this week. On Thursday, the city of Hampton announced Thursday’s trash collection would take place Friday, and Friday’s trash collection would take place on Saturday.

There has not been a more recent update.

Solid waste collections were suspended on Wednesday and Thursday this week, and the city’s compost facility was closed. Solid waste collections are scheduled to resume Friday, beginning with Wednesday’s trash collection route and moving on to Thursday’s trash collection route on Saturday.

Norfolk:

Trash normally collected on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be picked up beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday and continuing through Monday. Regularly scheduled trash collection will resume Tuesday.

If you have trash that does not fit in your waste containers, it should be put in dark/opaque trash bags and set beside your trash cans. For recycling materials that don’t fit in your recycling bins, put them in clear trash bags beside your recycling bin.

Bulk and yard trash and recycling will resume on Tuesday. For household hazardous waste and electronic recycling, the city’s drop off center will reopen on Monday at 10 a.m.
