Every Monday leading up to the race day, March 4, Newport News Now is featuring various One City Marathon participants and partners. We hope these spotlights bring you insights and personal perspectives on why people participate in the marathon and what it means to them. Whether it's running, volunteering, cheering or sponsoring, every participant in the One City Marathon is important.

Solid Waste Collections Resume Today

The New Year’s Day holiday and winter storm Grayson have thrown our trash, recycling and bulk waste collections schedule way off.  Crews had been pulled for snow removal, but are resuming collections today. Unfortunately, some neighborhood streets are still unsafe for our drivers to navigate. If they skip your street due to road conditions, they will return. Bottom line: place your solid waste out according to the schedule below and leave it out until it is collected. Today’s collections started with Wednesday routes. Thursday routes are to be collected tomorrow. Regular collections for this week will be delayed two days. The schedule is below.

  • Wed. 1/3, which had been moved to Thurs because of the holiday, will be collected on Mon. 1/8

  • Thurs. 1/4, which had been moved to Fri because of the holiday, will be collected on Tues. 1/9

  • Mon 1/8 collected on Wed. 1/10

  • Tues 1/9 collected on Thurs. 1/11

  • Wed. 1/10 collected on Fri. 1/12
  • Thurs 1/11 collected on Sat. 1/13

Neighborhoods with 18-gallon recycling bins instead of the wheeled carts will not be collected this week; those weekly collections will resume next week. Read more...



Mayor Price Holds Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Food Drive

Delegate Marcia Price, Sheriff Gabe Morgan join to Honor Dr. King

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed that life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others? In answer to Dr. King’s timeless question and to honor his legacy of service, Mayor McKinley Price is pleased to partner with Delegate Marcia Price, Sheriff Gabe Morgan, and the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank to host the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Food Drive.
Price said, “One out of every seven people in our community struggles with hunger. This food drive is a wonderful opportunity to continue Dr. King’s legacy, replenish the Foodbank’s supply of food after the holidays, and help families right here on the peninsula.” Read more...
