Enviroperks, The Program


Norfolk is central to Hampton Roads and is home to many great attractions that keep residents occupied when they’re not recycling and being green. Norfolkians are hipper than hipsters when it comes to recycling and the environment.

Need A Second Recycling Cart?

Norfolk wants to make sure you can recycle as much as possible. They’ll gladly deliver a second recycling cart if you need one! Email the Norfolk Impact Center at healthyneighborhoods@norfolk.gov to request a second cart.

Recycling Beyond The Cart

There are many items that can be recycled, but not in your curbside cart, like household hazardous waste. If you would like to recycle batteries, electronics, and other hazardous materials, visit the City’s recycling website.

Local, Green, Made in the USA, and National businesses!

EnviroPerks is all about your community, saving you money every day, and helping you live a greener lifestyle!

These plastic pieces can be found in many aspects of our lives, and are so prevalent that they are hard to avoid.
