Park and Ride at Kings Park Shopping Center

June 27, 2017 at 9:21 pm

Neighbors!! There is a survey that I have attached that asks for input about the Park and Ride that the government wants to put at the Kings Park Shopping Center. The Braddock Road Task Force BRTF that consists of community members from neighborhoods affected by the Braddock Road project has recommended to NOT put in a Park and Ride at Kings Park. However, the government is under NO obligation to abide by the BRTF recommendations and they are actively soliciting responses from the community about our opinions at putting a Park and Ride at Kings Park. Please take the survey and let your voice be heard. Thanks!! Dale Johnson

May 13th Bulk Trash Pick Up for American Disposal Customers

April 30, 2017 at 7:20 pm

ATTENTION American Disposal Customers:  Bulk trash pick up is coming May 13th! 

1) FOUR (4) “bulk” items max per customer (bulk could mean anything from a furniture item such as a chair, sofa, mattress, or carpet to bicycle, gym equipment, etc. ).  If you leave out more than 4 items, they will choose the 4 to take and leave the rest in your property for you to bring back into your house

2) PROHIBITED ITEMS: see list of prohibited items below; however, use the presence of chemicals, solvents, petroleum based products as a guide for what not to try to dispose of…thus, no paint cans, propane tanks, used oil, etc.  (These can all be recycled at the Fairfax County Waste Management Complex)

3) No “routine” garbage items.   (*This is not intended as an extra garbage pick-up day, so they will not pick-up trash bags, lawn debris, etc.)  

4) If you are NOT an American Disposal customer, your bulk trash will NOT be picked up.  We tried to negotiate a bulk trash pick up with New Republic, but they declined to participate.

5) Your dues need to be paid in full for 2017!!! This service is for dues paying American Disposal customers..

Please note this is normally a $50 service you are receiving for FREE.  Our thanks to Adam Strickland for organizing.

May 6 Community Yard Sale

April 18, 2017 at 1:06 pm

Get ready for the Community Yard Sale on Saturday, May 6!

*Start gathering your treasures NOW to sell on May 6th. Plan how you are going to display your items and price them before the sale day.

*The civic association will advertise the CW Yard Sale but you can do posters or place your own ad on Craig’s List, etc. to direct customers to your specific house.

*Have two people working your site – you’ll need bathroom breaks!

*Possible light rain? Use your garage or a tent on your driveway.

*If you have only a few items, you can go in with one or two nearby neighbors to make a bigger showing. Or you can take items before Saturday (and get a tax deductible receipt) to Tammy and Kathy’s yard sale at 8503 Queen Elizabeth (703-425-1249); they will continue their tradition of donating the proceeds to the American Cancer Society.

*YES, you can have a bake sale/lemonade stand to draw customers!

*Don’t forget to decide in advance what you’ll do with stuff that doesn’t sell. (If your trash service is American Disposal, and you want to get rid of several large items, see the posting about the American Disposal Bulk Trash Pick up Day on May 13th.)

Happy Selling!!!!
