Bulk Waste Requests for 2020
This visualization provides a view of just how busy this team is, and how crucial their work is to our city. The drop off in April represents the weeks during which the city could not collect bulk waste. The spike represents bulk waste requests after the service resumed in May, as well as a spike after Tropical Storm Isaias knocked down trees and limbs around Norfolk. Hover over the graph, click, and drag your cursor to see more recent dates.
