8:00 am - Noon
Pimmit Hills Center parking lot, Griffith Road/Lisle Avenue
The next PHCA Dumpster Day (former known as Clean-Up Day) will be held rain or shine on Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 8:00 am to Noon (sharp!) at the Pimmit Hills Center parking lot off of Griffith Road and Lisle Avenue.
The Pimmit Hills Citizens Association with the help of Cherri Drive resident Meredith Stewart has arranged for this special day for Fairfax County refuge trucks to come take our junk away. This is a great time to get rid of the big pieces of old junk you have in your house or your yard.
What CAN you bring that day? Big appliances like ovens, washers; furniture like couches, chairs, mattresses; lamps, stereos, computers, bicycles, tables, doors, bed frames, cabinets, shelving, carpets, etc, etc.
What you CANNOT bring: Normal household refuse, brush (including tree branches and logs), yard waste, rocks, brick, concrete, stone, dirt, motor oil, car batteries, paint, roofing shingles, drywall, asbestos, glass, hazardous chemicals and pesticides, toxic waste, animal waste and explosives.
Bring the junk you want to get rid of to the Pimmit Hills Center parking lot on Lisle beginning at 8 am and ending SHARP at Noon. In order to drop the stuff off, you must be a member of the Pimmit Hills Citizens Association. If you haven’t sent in your dues yet, PHCA will have a table collecting yearly dues or join online quickly and securely.
If you’ve never taken advantage of Dumpster Day, it’s an amazing thing to watch the Fairfax County garbage trucks “eat” an entire couch. They also use a truck with a big crane which picks up all the large metal pieces. The day is also a great time to help out, meet fellow PH’ers and even spot a treasure that someone else is throwing away.
Pimmit Hills resident Linda Wheeler has offered to help those in need of a truck to transport items to the Pimmit Hills Center. Call her at 703-475-5347 or 703-734-1683 to schedule a pick-up.
We need volunteers to help out at the site that day. Come early and wear old clothes and bring work gloves.
Thanks again to Pimmit Hills resident Meredith Stewart for helping to arrange this annual event and Linda Wheeler for arranging for pickups.
