Safety Railings Installed at Recovery Operations Center

The Recovery Operations Center, located at 550 Atkinson Way, recently added railings at the citizen drop-off area. This safety measure was put in place in an effort to keep citizens safe, prevent accidental injuries, and avoid potential falls into the containers. Citizens can use the drop-off for bulk and brush disposal needs. As always, citizens can place bulk waste curbside for pick-up provided it meets certain criteria. The Center also offers recycling, disposal of household hazardous waste, and mulch and compost sales. Learn more about the Recovery Operations Center. For questions or more information, contact Newport News 311 Center at (757) 933-2311 or

Newport News Now to Feature a Business Every Friday

Starting tomorrow, every Friday Newport News Now will feature a local business in the new section titled Business Now. Newport News recognizes the contribution of local businesses to the economic strength, diversity, vitality, and overall character of the City. We are proud of the companies that have chosen to make Newport News their business home and pleased that many continue to grow and expand here. Our business community is comprised of companies ranging from single-person entrepreneurial endeavors to the largest industrial employer in Virginia. We have companies in Newport News from almost every business sector.

To encourage our citizens and community partners to help us recognize and celebrate members of the Newport News business community, we will be regularly highlighting the successes and achievements of various Newport News companies. It is our hope that these brief business snapshots will provide each reader with a better insight into the work taking place in Newport News each and every day.
