Get rewarded for recycling

Tuesday is “America Recycles Day”, a day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling across the nation.

Locally, TFC Recycling is preparing to recognize streets and neighborhoods that regularly put those blue bins on the curb filled with paper, plastic and metal.

Starting in January “Green Streets” will honor blocks and neighborhoods that have recycling participation rates of 80 percent or higher. This is in the cities of Chesapeake, Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Suffolk.

Visit to nominate your street today.

TFC will factor in your nominations and electronic data it collects to choose the Green Street winners.
