Arlington County has deemed its latest Environmental Collection and Recycling Event (E-CARE) another success.
The event on Saturday attracted 1,239 residents who dropped off 41.5 tons of hazardous household materials and 11.5 tons of electronics for recycling.
The next E-CARE event will be held next spring. This past spring, E-CARE collected 35.5 tons of hazardous household materials and some 20 tons of electronics.
E-CARE is held biannually at Thomas Jefferson Middle School (125 S. Old Glebe Road).
For the hundreds of thousands of migrants on the move across Europe, the pace of a day is dictated by forces almost entirely beyond their control.
