Prince William County Recycles Day is set for Oct. 20, and residents can celebrate by taking a tour of the local landfill.
The approximately 1,000 acre landfill will be open for visitors from 10 a.m. til 2 p.m. on Oct. 20. In addition to the landfill tours, there will be educational activities, games, children's activities and face painting. There will also be door prizes and free hot dogs and drinks. Residents may bring up to four boxes of their papers to shred at the landfill, which is located at 14811 Dumfries Rd., in the Independent Hill area.
The action coincides with Prince William County Recycles Day. The Board of County Supervisors declared the day at a recent meeting to encourage recycling and reducing waste. To read the proclamation, click on the PDF file to the right.
