Fairfax County to Sponsor Recycling Road Show at Edison High School

The Fairfax County Solid Waste Management Program and the Fairfax County Public Schools are working to recycle unwanted items. A computer and bicycle recycling event will be held at Edison High School, 5801 Franconia Road, Alexandria on Saturday, Sept. 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Computers and related office equipment will be collected by ServiceSource, a local nonprofit agency that employs people with disabilities. Except for computer monitors, all computer equipment will be accepted at no cost. A $10 donation will be collected for each computer monitor to ensure the environmentally sound management of potentially hazardous materials found in monitors.

Used bicycles will be collected by Bikes for the World, a local nonprofit group that repairs used bikes and ships them to developing countries. Bikes must be in repairable condition. A $10 donation will be collected for each bicycle to help defray the cost of shipping them overseas.

All donations are tax deductible and receipts will be issued by each nonprofit organization.

Event partners include ServiceSource, Bikes for the World, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, CDM E-Cycling, Potomac Disposal and Washington Mutual Home Loans.

Fairfax County is committed to practicing environmental stewardship by providing opportunities for residents to recycle items that still have a useful life. Clean out your house and help keep Fairfax County clean by participating in this recycling event.
