Residents may exceed the yard waste limit to allow for post-storm debris cleanup
NORFOLK – Due to the downed trees, tree limbs and small branches from Tuesday night’s storm, the City’s Department of Public Works has temporarily lifted yard waste limits for residents. Through Tuesday, June 7, residents will be permitted to exceed the three-cubic-yard limit per collection, and may place yard debris in the right-of-way on a non-collection day. Residents are asked to place yard debris in clear plastic bags and tie tree limbs less than 4 feet, 6 inches in diameter into bundles. For tree limbs larger than 4 feet, 6 inches, homeowners should call the City’s Division of Waste Management at 441-5813 to make arrangements. .
The waiver applies to yard waste only. All bulk, miscellaneous and appliance items still need to be scheduled and will be collected on the regularly-scheduled collection day. Effective Wednesday, June 8, the three-cubic-yard limit will go back into effect, and code restrictions and/or limits will be enforced for yard waste.
