Recycle your Christmas Trees!

Did you know that your Christmas tree can be recycled as yard waste?
When the holidays are over and the decorations all come down, all you need to do is remove the ornaments, lights and garland from your tree and set it to the curb for Monday collection just like your regular yard waste. Your tree will then be recycled as landscaping material for use throughout the year.

5 Tips for Becoming a Star Recycler in 2015

As the New Year begins, everyone makes resolutions to become more active, take up a new hobby and see the world. Sometimes you make the leap and achieve great results. Here are five simple tips for the New Year that can make you a star recycler and help the environment.

  • Pick one thing and do it well. Try recycling plastic water bottles! Americans buy over 42 billion plastic water bottles each year. Almost eight out of ten end up in a landfill or incinerator. Recycled plastic can be made into clothing, carpeting and lots of other useful stuff.
  • Be more creative! Recycle your old magazines by using them to make jewelry, hand bags and home décor! Becoming more environmentally friendly isn’t all doom and gloom. Express yourself!
  • Visit new places. The City of Manassas has regular Household Hazardous Waste, Electronic Waste and Shredding events throughout the year. In November, we collected over 20 tons of unwanted materials for recycling in four hours! Make 2015 the year you visit us and join your community in recycling.
  • Let go of the past. Local thrift stores and charities take everything from household items to clothing to books, games and DVDs. If something isn’t really “you” anymore, you can re-gift it to a family in need.
  • Get more exercise. Last year, over 128 volunteers helped make the City cleaner and more enjoyable to visit through Adopt a Street. Many volunteers are walkers who have noticed litter along their route and decided to do something about it. Along the way, they have collected over a ton of litter and recyclable materials just by taking regular walks close to where they live.

Disposing of sharps:

Read the advisory notice on the current guidance for the safe disposal of sharps in the City of Manassas.

Plastic grocery bags:

  • Did you know you can recycle plastic bags and wraps at local stores? Most people don't know they can recycle plastic bags and wraps at stores.  But today more than 18,000 stores across the United States - from grocery chains like Wegmans to major retailers such as Target and Lowes- collect many types of plastic bags and product wraps for recycling.  We're counting on you to help spread the word and educate City of Manassas residents about taking their plastic bags and product wraps back for recycling. You can recycle plastic bags at Walmart, Giant, Harris Teeter and Food Lion too!
