The Community Recycling Roadshow pulled into Herndon High Saturday. The day-long event, sponsored by the school's Students Against Global Abuse and the Clean Fairfax Council, was an opportunity for community members to rid their homes of unwanted paper, cell phones, computer equipment, tennis shoes and bicycles. All of which will be recycled in one form or another and used again.
For example, the tennis shoes will be ground up and used for playgrounds and athletic tracks; the cell phones will be given to domestic abuse victims; the bicycles will be repaired and shipped overseas; while the computers will be stripped of their usable parts. The paper products were shredded and hauled away by a truck that doubles as a giant shredding machine.
