Recycling Program in Chesapeake
*Please place your cans out at the curb on your scheduled collection day. Due to the weather, crews are behind but will be picking up as soon as possible. Please leave your can out until it is collection. Thank you for your patience!*
RECYCLING WEEK REMINDERS

Recycling Perks program and earn points every time you recycle. Use those points to get money off local restaurants, stores and entertainment. It pays to recycle!
Where to place bin on collection day:
Please place your bins with the lids opening toward the street with a minimum of 3 feet between each container and other objects.
What to do with those old electronics? Recycle them! While the City does not have an e-cycling program, we do offer quarterly events throughout the City that provide an opportunity to recycle some electronics. Visit our Chesapeake Recycles Day webpage for more information. You can also search Earth911.com to find local businesses that recycle electronics and a variety of other items. Just put in the item you want to recycle and your zip code and see what pops up!
How to order a recycling bin:
Need your first recycling bin? Call 382-CITY (2489)
Need a second big blue bin? Get one at a discounted price of $42 (includes tax). Purchase by cash, check or charge at any City Treasurer's office in Chesapeake.
Live in an area with no recycling?
No recycling? Gasp! Don't worry, you can still do the right thing with your recyclables! If you live in an apartment or condominium complex that does not offer recycling, you can bring your recyclables to the TFC Recycling drop-off site:
1958 Diamond Hill Road
There is a spot on the right-hand side of the road, before the gate, where the public is welcome to drop their recyclables
Hazardous waste materials cannot go in the recycling bin or in the regular garbage can. They must be disposed of properly at one of the SPSA transfer stations or at one of our quarterly Chesapeake Recycles Day events. To learn more about what constitutes hazardous waste and how to dispose of it, visit the SPSA Hazardous Waste Disposal website.
