Birkdale’s Recycling and Trash Collection

Dear Member/Resident of Birkdale:

The below information is to update each Member and Resident as to the status of recycling and trash collection in Birkdale.  


On November 8, 2022, Chesterfield County announced the cessation of the county sponsored and funded recycling program effective July 1, 2023.

Chesterfield County’s contract with CVWMA for curbside recycling services ends on Saturday, July 1, 2023. Residents and businesses may begin transitioning to private haulers at any time by contacting their preferred hauler. The following companies have indicated that they will provide curbside recycling, to include provision of containers for their service:

Each hauler will provide instructions regarding existing containers. Containers no longer needed can be brought to a Chesterfield Convenience Center at no cost for recycling.

At the Board meeting on June 8, 2023, the Board voted to comply with Chesterfield County’s recycling policy. Each Birkdale Member/Resident may contract with a private contractor for curbside recycling service. 


On May 1, 2023, the Board offered an information survey asking residents “Are you in favor of allowing curbside trash pickup, in addition to backyard trash pickup, altering Birkdale’s current policy of backyard pickup only?”  Of the 657 Birkdale homeowners, 369 responded to the survey. 211 voted “YES” (to permit curbside pickup) and 158 voted “NO” (not to permit curbside pickup). 

At the Board meeting on May 4, 2023, the “option to permit curbside pickup” was presented, discussed, and tabled. 

On June 8, 2023, the Board held a virtual special meeting. The Board voted to maintain current trash policies.  The Board created a special ad-hoc Trash Committee to research, compile information, and present an update at the August 3, 2023, Regular Board Meeting.

Please submit your comments and questions the Trash Committee and the Board at
