The City of Manassas is celebrating Earth Day, with a Spring Recyclefest, Saturday April 1, 2017, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Manassas Transfer Station located at 8305 Quarry Road, in Manassas.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average U.S. household generates more than 20 pounds of household hazardous waste per year. In 2016, City residents dropped off a total of more than 142 tons of recyclable material at nine household hazardous waste and electronic waste drop off days held at the Manassas Transfer Station, last year!
During Recyclefest, City residents can drop of household hazardous waste, electronic waste and shred their paper documents, for free. Proof of residency is required to enter and no commercial waste will be accepted.
We are delighted to have recycling guest Savers™ returning to collect gently used clothing, accessories and household goods and helps to support our community by donating part of the proceeds to a local organization. This year, the Martin K. Alloy Boys & Girls Club of Manassas will receive a donation based on the total weight of the recycled items they receive.
The continued support of our community makes RecycleFest the best recycling event in the City’s history. We’ve even received national recognition from Keep America Beautiful for a job well done.
The recycling adventure continues in the City of Manassas – drop in and drop off at RecycleFest!
