The VPPSA Compost Facility 145 Goodwin Neck Road, Yorktown is temporarily closed to the public. During this closure, citizens should utilize the County’s Curbside Yard Debris Collection program by calling 757-890-3780 or through the online Customer Service Request.  

In the interim, County staff will do its best to provide limited service. Citizens and local contractors with essential yard waste disposal needs who are delivering these materials to the Waste Management Center will be directed to an alternate location on-site to drop off limbs, branches, and clear bags of natural yard waste.

  • All residents who subscribe to the County’s curbside solid waste program may schedule two yard debris collections per 30 day period (approximately 24 cubic yards) at a rate of $25 per collection.
