We’re saving the world, one blue bin at a time. We strive to remain engaged in the Hampton Roads community, because we love our home and we want others to, as well.
That’s why Bay Disposal makes a point to sponsor and support a number of local & national initiatives and organizations, including the Salvation Army, Relay for Life, National Kidney Foundation, Old Dominion University, and Virginia Wesleyan University. If you live in the area, you’ve likely seen our pink Susan G. Komen trucks during the month of October, which is national breast cancer awareness month.
