Got an old computer you want to dispose of safely? Eyeglasses with an outdated prescription? Many communities are holding their fall recycling events, collecting a lot more than what they pick up curbside. I rounded up a few near me:
- Arlington: E-CARE, Saturday October 15th, 8:30am-3pm, Thomas Jefferson Middle School, 125 S. Old Glebe Rd.
- DC: Holds Household Hazardous Waste/E-cycling/Document Shredding events on the first Saturday of the month (except holidays), 8am-3pm, Ft. Totten Transfer Station, 4900 John F. McCormack Road NE
- Fairfax: Household Hazardous Waste Event, Saturday September 10th, 9am-2pm, McLean Governmental Center1437 Balls Hill Road, McLean, VA
- Falls Church: Semi-Annual Recycling Extravaganza, Saturday September 10th, 9am-2pm, Falls Church Recycling Center, 217 Gordon Road
To find out if your community is offering a fall recycling event, Google’s the best resource. You can also visit the Virginia Dept. of Environmental Quality or see more options at the Environmental Protection Agency’s eCycling.
