The City is hosting the next Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event July 23, 2011, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Recycling Center and Property Yard, 217 Gordon Road.

Download the event flyer with a list of acceptable items.

Household hazardous waste refers to used or leftover contents of consumer products that contain materials with one of the four characteristics of a hazardous waste: toxic, ignitable, corrosive or reactive. Household hazardous wastes, such as cleaners, automotive fluids, herbicides, pesticides, oil-based paints, and thinners should not be disposed with regular trash. Improper disposal of even a small amount of hazardous waste can have major adverse impacts on our air, water, and soil and may result in death or serious bodily injury.

The safest way for residents to dispose of household hazardous waste is to bring it to one of the City’s collection events or to the permanent collection facility in Fairfax County, free of charge. (The City’s fee to dispose of residential refuse at the Fairfax County Transfer Station entitles City residents to use the Fairfax County Facility.) The household hazardous waste is disposed or recycled according to local, state and federal regulations.

Students Invited to Enter Falls Church Community TV Photo and Video Contest Winners to Receive the Bob Morrison Prize

What better way for students to spend summer break than to tap into their creative talent and vie for a cash prize? Students with a still or video camera can do just that and compete for one of two, $250 Bob Morrison Prizes. This annual contest was created by the TV station’s Cable Access Board in memory of longtime board member Bob Morrison.

“Bob was a wonderful talent and a Falls Church icon,” said Cable Access Board President Barbara Cram. “He never left home without a camera, and as a result, he left us a treasure trove of golden memories. Through this contest, we hope to encourage young artists, as Bob often did, to take their best shot and capture the spirit of The Little City.”

The contest is open to students in grades K-12 (during the 2010-2011 school year) who live or attend school in Falls Church City. Students may submit photographs or videos illustrating the theme of “Falls Church City – My Hometown.” Entries will be judged on theme, quality and creativity by a three-person judging panel. The first place winner in each category will be awarded the $250 cash prize during the Falls Church Cable Access Corporation Annual Meeting in October.

Entry requirements can be found on the Falls Church City Television web site, All entries must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30. For more information call Mike Palmrose, 703-248-5692.
