Fairfax County Community Recycling Roadshow
To Be Held Nov. 5
Help keep Fairfax County clean by coming to the Recycling Roadshow at Herndon High School, 700 Bennett St., Herndon, on Nov. 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Herndon High School's environmental group, Students Against Global Abuse (SAGA), will host the annual Recycling Roadshow so residents can recycle a variety of items while supporting community groups.
SAGA, in cooperation with Fairfax County's Recycling Program and Clean Fairfax Council, will be collecting the following items for recycling:
- Computers and related equipment
- Cell phones
- Rechargeable batteries
- Gently worn shoes
In addition to collecting these items for recycling, secure document shredding and recycling services will be provided by Safeguard Shredding.
Computers and related equipment will be reused or recycled by ServiceSource, a charitable organization that finds jobs for 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 in monitors.
Used bicycles will be collected by Bikes for the World, a nonprofit organization that repairs used bikes and sends them to developing countries. Bikes must be in reparable 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.
Fairfax County is committed to practicing environmental stewardship by providing opportunities for residents to recycle items that still have a useful life. Clean out the house and help keep Fairfax County clean by participating in this recycling event.
