Have some pumpkins that you want to become compost? Paper that you want shredded? Rocks that you want out of your yard?
You’ll be able to do all three of those things at a single county-run event next month.
Arlington County is planning a free “Pumpkin Drop-Off, Free Paper Shredding & Inert Material Drop-Off” event on Saturday, Nov. 7, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. It’s being held at the county’s Earth Products Yard near Shirlington (4300 29th Street S.).
“Unload that moldering pumpkin and have it become compost – just be sure to remove decorations, paint, etc.” says the county website.
The paper shredding is available for county residents only, with a limit of two boxes (up to 18″ by 11″ by 10″) or paper bags per person. You can bring your paper with staples and paper clips, but magazines, catalogs, and phone book-sized material will not be accepted.
Inert material — asphalt, ceramic tiles, concrete, dirt, masonry blocks, rocks, and sand — will also be collected. Up to 3 cubic yards, or a small pickup truck load, will be accepted per person.
