Electronic and Hazardous Recycling Event – Sat. Sept. 24th from 10am-2pm @ Virginia Aquarium

From personal experience, this is a wonderful service.  It’s well run, quick and FREE.  Please use it if you have items that would be better recycled than poisoning our earth in a landfill. Click here for more details
