Dee Leonard, one of the builders of the Warrenton Area Civitan Club is scheduled to be the guest speaker at the Jefferson Ruritan Club’s September 17 2013 general membership meeting.

The Warrenton Area Civitan Club (a branch of the National Civitan Club) is a service organization chartered in April 2013. The Civitan organization focuses on helping people with developmental disabilities and funding research into illnesses of the human brain.

One of the ways that the Warrenton Area Civitan Club has been raising funds for their projects is through recycling old, worn out sneakers.

The Civitan organization is an all volunteer service club, dating back to 1917. Chapters of the club can be found in 38 countries around the world.

The Jefferson Ruritan Club meets the third Tuesdays of each month at 7pm at the Jeffersonton Community Center in Jeffersonton VA.

Single Stream Recycling in Jeffersonton

Single Stream Recycling

Single Stream Recycling

Recently County Waste started to provide some Jeffersonton area customers with free Single Stream Recycling service. Single Stream Recycling is a convenient way to recycle; items do not need to be sorted as much as traditional recycling has been required in the past. Single stream recycling allows co-mingling of glass, paper, metal, and plastics. This method increases the convenience for the consumer, as the consumer no longer has to find the storage space in their homes for multiple recycling sorting bins. This method also minimizes the time investment of the consumer, increasing the likelihood that the consumer will actually participate in the recycling effort!

Not all of the Jeffersonton Roads are covered by this service yet. A telephone call to  County Waste to determine if a particular road is covered (or can be added to the coverage plan) may result in a supervisor making a field visit to look at the road. This is required to determine if the road is large enough for the recycling collection truck to be able to safely maneuver during the collection process. If you are interested in learning more about this program give them a call at 1-866-456-6010  or visit the County Waste website.

Prior to this service, recycling in Jeffersonton was a cumbersome and difficult process. Consumers interested in recycling had to drive into Culpeper or Warrenton in order to drop off their recyclable items.
