Fall Recycling Events in Northern Virginia


In the fall, most local communities in our area offer specialty recycling events. I like to put these events on my calendar, giving myself a deadline to work toward in cleaning out my & my clients’ spaces. To help you do the same, here’s a list of some upcoming recycling & shredding events in Northern Virginia. Keep in mind, these events are typically meant to serve the communities in which they take place, and sometimes proof of residency is expected. In my experience, however, I've just found friendly efficient people happy to take whatever you are ready to part with…
