PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. – Leaders in Prince William County have come up with a way to help keep their community clean. They call the neighborhood clean-up program Dumpster Days, where throughout the spring and summer residents are invited to bring their trash to a collection site where, yes, a dumpster is waiting to be filled with junk.

Cathy Holtzlander, who works in Prince William’s Neighborhood Services office, sent us some numbers that show just how much trash was collected during this year’s Dumpster Days:

Yorkshire Area Cleanup ~ Emmanuel Baptist Church 2 Dumpsters ~ 1.12 tons

Town of Quantico 2 Dumpsters ~ 3.44 tons

Thousand Oaks Townhome Association (TOTA) 2 Dumpsters & 2 truckloads ~ 3.68 tons

Route 1 Litter Pickup in Partnership with KPWB 1080 lbs. or .48 tons

Woodbridge Civic Association (Featherstone Elementary) 6 Dumpsters ~ 13.36 tons

Irongate Area Cleanup 2 Dumpsters ~ 5.16 tons

Dale City Area Cleanup 2 Dumpsters ~ 2.59 tons

Sudley Area Cleanup ~ Sudley Elementary School 3 Dumpsters ~ 5.46 tons

Yorkshire Area Cleanup ~ Emmanuel Baptist Church 2 Dumpsters ~ 2.13 tons

There’s just one more Dumpster Day scheduled, according to Holtzlander, and it’ll be in Dumfries, from 8 a.m. until noon on Sept. 13. You can call the town’s public works department to volunteer at 703-221-3400 to help collect trash on that day.
