Just in time for spring cleaning, the Donation Drop Spot, previously known as “The Donation Place”, will reopen on April 19. Located in the Citizens’ Convenience Area at the Prince William County Landfill, The Donation Drop Spot will reopen on April 19 for the collection of a variety of reusable household items and clothing. The hours of collection at the landfill will be 9:00 a. m. to 5:00 p. m. daily and an attendant will be there to assist donors and provide a receipt. The Balls Ford Road Compost Facility will have bins available from 7:30 a. m. to 5:00 p. m. for small household items and clothing.
Donations received at the Donation Drop Spot and bins will benefit the National Children’s Center and be operated by Savers. A full list of accepted items can be found at savers.com/donate/what-we-take. Although the Donation Drop Spot is in the same location as previous reuse programs at the landfill, the facility has undergone some improvements that will enhance work conditions and material storage.
“Our goal is to keep this material out of the landfill, which will extend the life of the landfill and give these materials additional useful life,” states Scott MacDonald, recycling program manager for Prince William County. “We are very excited to be partnering with Savers for the operation of our reuse programs. Savers has extensive experience in operating attended donation centers and repurposing second-hand goods, and we hope they will be a good match for Prince William, and will help us divert more materials for reuse,” he adds.
