Waste Management Division
The Waste Management Division of the Public Works Department provides refuse collection once every week for over 60,000 residences in Chesapeake. Over 100,000 tons of refuse is collected annually. The City's Solid Waste is transported to the Southeastern Public Service Authority (SPSA) transfer located on Greenbrier Parkway, or the regional Refuse Derived Fuel Facility located in Portsmouth (SPSA facility locations). For waste collection information and services, call your Chesapeake Customer Contact Center at 757-382-CITY (2489). Chesapeake residents may dispose of residential solid waste at SPSA facilities.
WASTE MANAGEMENT SERVICE ALERT
Providing timely collection of waste - household, bulk, and bagged yard waste - is a core mission for the City. Recently, we've faced some challenges in this area, due in large part to staffing shortages. The City is working to recruit additional staff and get them into the field as quickly as possible. However, during this time residents can expect delays for all types of waste collection. Please continue to place your brown trash cans and bagged yard waste (clear bags only) at the curb on your scheduled day, and continue to call or go online to schedule bulk waste collections. We appreciate your patience as we work to overcome the issues. If you know of anyone seeking a rewarding career, in a field that directly impacts their neighbors, please encourage them to visit the City's job site at https://jobs.cityofchesapeake.net to apply.
