Fairfax County and the city of Falls Church are sponsoring recycling events Sept. 11.
* The county government and two private businesses will hold a computer recycling event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the parking lot of CompUSA in Fairfax.
The donated computers will be recycled by ServiceSource's Keep it Green program. The organization employs people with disabilities who collect obsolete computer equipment, including monitors, printers, keyboards, mice and CPUs, that are then refurbished for resale or dismantled and recycled for parts.
Each person donating a computer will be eligible to win a new printer from CompUSA -- which, along with Peterson Retail Management, is sponsoring the event.
The store is at 12189 Fair Lakes Pkwy. There is a $10 fee for processing computer monitors; all other equipment will be taken free. For more information, call 703-324-5313 or visit www.keepitgreen.org or www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpwes/trash/recyclingtrash.htm.
* The city of Falls Church Department of Environmental Services and the Environmental Services Council are sponsoring a "recycling extravaganza" from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Officials are asking that people bring unwanted electronics, computers, television sets, clothing, textiles, eyeglasses, hearing aids, bicycles and printer cartridges to the Falls Church Recycling Center at 217 Gordon Rd. All items will be recycled or donated to charities.
