Recycling may not seem like fun, but it can be at the Fall Recyclefest on November 5 in Manassas.
According to a release, Manassas is hosting the event to celebrate “America Recycles Day” from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Manassas Transfer Station at 8305 Quarry Road.
“According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average U.S. household generates more than twenty pounds of household hazardous waste per year. In 2015, City of Manassas residents dropped off more than one hundred twenty three tons of recyclable material at nine household hazardous waste and electronic waste drop off days held at the Manassas Transfer Station,” stated a release.
During the event, Manassas residents can drop off household hazardous waste, electronic waste, and shred up to four boxes of paper documents, free of charge.
“Proof of residency is required to enter and no commercial waste will be accepted,” stated a release.
Thrift store chain Savers will also be at the event, collecting gently used clothing, accessories, and household goods, according to a release. Savers will be making a donation to the Martin K. Alloy Boys & Girls Club of Manassas, based on the total weight of recycled donations they receive during Recyclefest, according to a release.
