What's Up
City of Chesapeake Bulk Pick-up Service
Have you noticed the large truck with boom arm and claw that occasionally comes through the neighborhood? That is the ‘bulk pick-up service’ that the City offers. If you have limbs or other yard debris that won’t fit into clear plastic bags you can pile it at the curb in front of your home and the city will pick it up.
To initiate the service please call bulk pick-up at 757-382-2489 before 5 pm on Thursday. Limbs and branches should be cut to 4-foot lengths or the claw will not be able to grab them.
Please note, after the truck leaves you are responsible for sweeping up any leftover debris. This is actually a city ordinance (Section 62-7). More than that, as we get into the season with potentially heavy rainfall, leaves and small twigs can quickly clog the storm drains and cause backups into the street. Please help keep the community safe by cleaning up the leftovers.

Our website has gone through a recent upgrade to catch up with the latest software version.  Most of the changes will not impact how our registered users interface with the website. In fact, most of the changes will only be apparent to the website administrator.  Our volunteer web admin is still learning to navigate the new changes and hopes to soon implement a few new features the KWCL Board has in mind.
Residents who were previously registered on the website will have to update their password during the Logon process by clicking on the Forgot Password link. The same is true if they forgot their username and need to use the Forgot Username link. Instructions will be sent to the email that is registered on website. Anyone whose registered email is no longer valid, should re-register as a new user. In fact, if you haven’t been on the site for a while, you may just want to re-register to make sure all your information is up to date.
Only Kemp Woods residents can register on the website. Membership to the Civic League is not required.
