Do Recycle:

  • #1 & #2 plastics

Christmas trees can be placed at the curb for collection. Remember, only natural trees that are free of tree stands and all trimmings (decorations, ornaments, tinsel and lights) will be collected.

As a college student, making an extra buck now and then was very important. I started as a part-time reporter since I was 19 yo, and I couldn’t believe it might become a long-time career. I'm happy to be part of the Virginian Tribune's team.
