Have You Seen the Rocks?
If you take a walk around our neighborhood you may have seen the painted rocks that have appeared in recent days. They are delightful! We've captured most of them in a photo album. Check it our in the photo album link and then look for them as you walk. Kemp Woods Rocks!
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.
