How do I dispose of trash?

The County does not provide curbside trash pickup, but citizens have 2 options for trash disposal:

  1. The County operates 3 convenience centers where residents may dispose of trash or recyclable materials. Coupons, which subsidize the cost of waste disposal, are required to dispose of trash at the convenience centers.
  2. Residents may hire a private company to perform curbside trash pickup.

The County's curbside recycling program serves approximately 25,000 homes. If you live in the service area, a recycling cart and brochure will be delivered to your home upon request. Enroll in the County's curbside recycling program or call the recycling hotline at 757-253-6700 to determine if curbside recycling is available in your area. Curbside collection is provided bi-weekly. View the recycling schedule for your home.
