Current Status of Residential Curbside Recycling
Recycling FAQs
Updated July 11, 2019
On July 31, 2018, Tidewater Fibre Corporation (TFC) Recycling exercised the 90-day opt out clause in Norfolk’s recycling contract and notified the City, in writing, that the company would cease recycling collection on November 1, 2018. The City immediately began a process to continue the residential curbside recycling program. TFC has agreed to continue the residential curbside recycling program until a new contract is awarded. Currently, contract negotiations are underway.
