Many items that end up in the landfill are still in good working condition.  These items could have been given away, donated or sold. 

 

Temporarily Closed

effective October 1, 2016

Located in the Citizens’ Convenience Area at the landfill, The Donation Place is in space formerly known as “Too Good To Waste” and is temporarily closed in order to find a new operator and make some necessary improvements to the facility.   Customers may no longer leave these donations at this facility or the Balls Ford Roac Compost Facility.

    Several organizations have placed textile bins in parking lots and public locations throughout the County. Look for a bin that resembles a large mailbox. They may be blue, yellow or white and are marked clothing and shoes. Please follow the instructions posted on the collection box. These materials may be sent along to the designated charity. 
     
    As part of the collections at the various donation centers, thrift shops and collection boxes, please remember the following textile items can be accepted: pants, dresses, hats, shirts, drapes, curtains, blankets, towels, sheets, handbags, belts and paired shoes. Note:  please do not include wet or mildewed materials, carpets and rugs, or rubber. For more information, please call 703-792-4670. 
      
    Books, CDs and Video Games
     
    Residents can recycle books, CDs and video games by donating them to the County Libraries. Donations may be added to the library collection or sold through the Friends of the Library for support of library programs. 
     
    Residents can also donate books at designated collection bins placed by various charity organizations.
     
    In addition, residents can sell or trade books and other media through several local shops:

    Other Resources Online
     
    There are also many online options, such as Craigslist and Freecycle, to find people interested in your usable items. 
     
    A few more ideas for around the house!
    • Hold a yard sale for items that you no longer need 
    • When shopping, bring reusable bags (take plastic bags back to stores for recycling)
    • Use sponges and dish towels instead of paper towels
    • Fix appliances that are worn out instead of throwing them away
    • Use both sides of the paper or use for scratch pads
    • Reuse mailing envelopes and boxes for your mailings
    • Reuse packing peanuts or take them to a mailing service that accepts them
    • Donate newspapers (no inserts please) to the animal shelter
