The City of Manassas is celebrating Earth Day with their Spring RecycleFest on April 1.
The festivities will be from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Manassas Transfer Station at 8305 Quarry Road, according to a release.
“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 of Manassas residents dropped off more than 142 tons of recyclable material at nine household hazardous waste and electronic waste drop off days,” stated a release.
During the event, residents can drop off hazardous waste, electronic waste, and up to four boxes of documents to be shredded – all for free.
“Proof of residency is required and no commercial waste will be accepted,” stated a release.
Additionally, Savers will be collecting gently used clothing and household items, and a portion of the proceeds collected will benefit the Manassas Boys & Girls Club.
