Henrico accepts storm debris at landfills, through pickup service

Henrico residents with debris from Monday afternoon's storm can take it to either of the county's two landfills for free or arrange a pickup for $43.

Residents can take vegetative debris, including brush and tree limbs, to the public-use areas of the Springfield Road Landfill, at 10600 Fords Country Lane, and the Charles City Road Landfill, at 2075 Charles City Road. Both areas are open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Residents also can arrange for a bulky waste pickup for $43 by calling (804) 501-4275. Limbs must not exceed 4 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length. Details are available at http://www.co.henrico.va.us/utility by clicking the links to “Solid Waste” and “Bulky Waste Collections.”

The drop-off and pickup services and their costs are standard for DPU.

Entertainment

Good food and fun, bargain prices

Pelon’s serves up a good mix of variety, value

I first stumbled into Pelon's on a Wednesday night, lured by the promise of $2 tacos and beers. At those prices, I had assumed the place was a hole in the wall, and was pleasantly surprised by the spacious, pleasant interior.

Having spent my teen summers in Virginia Beach surfing, I also felt instantly at home amid the ocean-themed decor. From the ride-the-waves posters lining the walls and the TV displaying non-stop surfing footage, to the foosball table and enormous spools serving as tables, Pelon's is a delight for beach lovers and surfing fans. Reading the menu is part of the entertainment here, as patrons browse burrito choices that include Rip Tide, The Curl, Hawaiian Pipeline and Big Kahuna. > Read more.
