Special Bulk Pickups Running a Day Late

Due to staffing shortages bulk pickups will be running a day late.  Regular Trash Pickup will be on the day scheduled but may run late.  Thank you for your patience.


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: recycle@suffolkva.us 514-7630
