Future of Chesapeake Recycling Program
Recycling Program Update -- Jan. 31, 2020
The City of Chesapeake has negotiated a five-month interim contract with Tidewater Fiber Corporation (TFC) to continue providing curbside recycling to eligible households through June 30, 2020, which is the end of the City’s fiscal year. There are no changes to residential curbside recycling collection during this period, and the program will continue on its normal schedule. Additionally, the popular Recycling Perks incentive program will be continued as part of the agreement. Continuation of recycling collection into the next fiscal year is still being reviewed as part of the City’s Operating Budget development. Further updates will be provided as they become available.
We encourage residents who wish to recycle to learn what they can and cannot recycle, and to always only place recyclable items into their blue curbside bins or communal recycling containers and dumpsters. A list of recyclable items and additional information about recycling in Chesapeake can be found at www.cityofchesapeake.net/recycle.
