The City of Manassas is celebrating America Recycles Day, with a Fall Recyclefest, Saturday November 5, 2016, 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 2015, City residents dropped off a total of more than 123 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.
This year, we are delighted to have a special recycling guest. Savers™ is a well-established recycling power house that collects gently used clothing, accessories and household goods and helps to support communities 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!
