Spring Community Clean-Up Event a Success

On April 29, 2017 the Orange Hunt Estates Civic Association (OHECA) and Winston Knolls Civic Association co-organized the annual Spring Clean-Up at Orange Hunt Elementary School.  Neighborhood residents turned out with about 250 vehicle trips for the big item drop-off and about 100 residents took advantage of the convenience of the shredding truck.  The county took away four roll-off containers of “stuff” that included lawn mowers, mattresses, BBQ grills, bicycles, TVs and so much more.  The cost savings to community residents for the large item drop-off alone was between $1,500 and $2,500.  Residents who wish to join OHECA for a small annual fee and take advantage of events like this in the future can download our sign-up form here.

A big thank you to Andrews Federal Credit Union for sponsoring the Shred-it truck and for having some staff available to assist residents.

The annual Fall Clean-Up and big item drop-off are scheduled for September 30, 2017.

Orange Hunt Estates Big-Item Drop Off & Shred Event

Big Item Drop-Off & Paper Shredding Event

Orange Hunt Estates and Winston Knolls Civic Associations are sponsoring a free big item drop-off with Fairfax County assistance and free shredding for community residents only. This event is scheduled for Saturday APRIL 29, 2017.

Trucks will be in the parking lot at Orange Hunt Elementary School from 8:00 am to noon for the big-item drop off and from 9:00 to noon for shredding.  The shredder can handle simple staples, paper clips, flip handle/butterfly binder clips, spiral note books, and six part folders with the two hole punch long and thin metal prongs. The shredder cannot handle 3 ring binders so the paper will have to be removed from the binders and binders are not taken away. File boxes or bags holding the paper will not be removed.
