Recycling Service Delays 

If your recycling is not collected please leave it out and it will be collected the following day.  We are working closely with our recycling contractor, TFC Recycling, and we are aware of any routes experiencing delays.  If your recycling is not collected by the end of the following day please contact the Refuse department:  (757) 514-7630.

Curbside Big Bin Recycling

The City of Suffolk, in partnership with locally-owned and operated TFC Recycling, is bringing curbside recycling to Suffolk:
  • Aluminum Cans
  • Steel/Tin Cans
  • Glass Bottles
  • Paper Products (Printer Paper, Newspaper, Magazines, Junk Mail, Cardboard Rolls, Flattened Carboard boxes)
  • Plastic Bottles and Jugs with a neck or spout (Beverages and Non-toxic Cleaning Products).
Just roll your Big Bin to the curb every other week, on the same day that the City collects your refuse. Big Bin Recycling is the easiest way to make Suffolk a cleaner, greener community.
