Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Before recycling, consider ways to reduce your trash, reuse items in other ways, then recycle where possible before throwing stuff away.

NOTICE: Mulch will be UNAVAILABLE at the I-95 landfill complex until mid-March 2019. A project to repair a concrete pad starts December 12, 2018.

Reduce / Reuse

cleanfairfax cupsSource reduction is the first goal of sustainability; then reuse. Recycling is last. Try to reduce waste in the first place, or reuse items before recycling.
