Vienna Offers E-Recycling, Dec. 5

The Town of Vienna is now offering a new recycling service for residents. Starting Dec. 5, citizens may drop off electronics to be recycled as part of the Town’s quarterly car battery and used motor oil recycling day from 8 a.m.–2 p.m. at the Northside Property Yard, 600 Mill Street NE.

Susan Stillman, chairman of the Community Enhancement Commission says, “Electronic components can be readily recycled and reused. By making e-recycling more convenient for Town residents, Vienna ups its game on becoming a more sustainable community."

Motor oil, antifreeze, and car batteries also may be dropped off for recycling on Saturday, Dec. 5. The Town has collected approximately 325 gallons of waste oil, 18 gallons of antifreeze, and nine automotive batteries through recycling this year. This free service is for Vienna residents only.
