Recycling Events Add a Touch of “Green” to June Weekend
The Fairfax County Solid Waste Management Program will host two recycling events during the weekend of June 25 and 26, 2011. The following events are free for Fairfax County residents:
· Saturday, June 25, 2011 – Document Shredding: This event will be held from 8 a.m. to Noon at Langley High School (6520 Georgetown Pike, McLean). Residents may shred up to 5 boxes of personal documents per household. Please remove all paper from binders and remove binder clips, plastic page covers and binding. Information stored on film or computer disks will not be accepted – paper documents only. All documents will be securely shredded on-site by a private contractor and the shredded material will be taken to a local recycling facility for processing.
Note: This event is not for medical service providers – it does not fulfill Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, requirements for document destruction.
· Sunday, June 26, 2011 - Electric Sunday: This event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the I-95 Landfill Complex (9850 Furnace Road, Lorton). Residents may recycle televisions, computers and peripheral electronics such as speakers, printers, scanners, etc. Also, residents can recycle unbroken fluorescent tubes and light bulbs.
Complete details for these events and other recycling opportunities planned for 2011 can be found on the Fairfax County Solid Waste Management Program’s web site at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/recycling, or by calling the Recycling InfoLine at 703-324-5052, TTY 711.
