Successful "Electric Sunday" Program Expands to Include Fluorescent Light Recycling
The Fairfax County Solid Waste Management Program, in partnership with Covanta Energy, Inc., is preparing to expand the "Electric Sundays" recycling program in 2010. These events will now offer residents an opportunity to recycle fluorescent light bulbs and tubes in addition to televisions, computers and peripheral electronic devices including keyboards, speakers, keyboards, printers, scanners, etc.
"More than eight thousand residents recycled over one million pounds of electronics at the ‘Electric Sunday’ events held at the I-66 Transfer Station during 2009," said Jeff Smithberger, Director of the Division of Solid Waste Collection and Recycling. "Thanks to the proven success of this program and the participation of the residents of Fairfax County, we are able to expand this program to include another ‘electric’ item -- fluorescent light bulbs and tubes, also known as compact fluorescent lights.
Fluorescent light bulbs and tubes contain a small amount of mercury. Given the high volume of fluorescent light usage in Fairfax County, properly recycling these bulbs and tubes can prevent mercury from entering our waste management system. Disposal of these materials at a household hazardous waste collection site allows for the recovery and recycling of the mercury, glass and aluminum contained in these bulbs and tubes.
Location: Southwest corner of Sully and Barnesfield roads
On the subject properties, located in the southeast quadrant of the Sully Road (Route 28)/Air & Space Museum Parkway interchange and west of Centreville Road (Route 657), Sully East L.C. proposes an amendment to two previously approved rezoning applications to permit the rezoning for the purpose of developing a secure office complex to be known as "Dulles Discovery South".
PCA 2003-SU-035 proposes to amend a portion of RZ 2003-SU-035, which was approved by the BOS on January 22, 2007 to permit the development of an age-restricted community and support commercial uses zoned PDR-16, PDC, WS and RD. This partial PCA application PCA 2003-SU-035 will supersede the governance of the previously approved proffers and Conceptual Development Plan/Final Development Plan layout to permit the inclusion of approximately 69 acres in the Dulles Discovery South rezoning application.
