Manassas, Virginia (February 9, 2018) – Snow days are a time-honored tradition that are usually met with excitement and happiness. The prospects of an unexpected day off from school and the chance to have an old-fashioned snowball fight are preferred over a day spent inside the classroom. This, however, was not the case for a select few students at Colgan High School in Northern Virginia. These fashion design students had been selected to compete in the Wearable Art category at the Off the Wall Art
Competition presented by The Center for the Arts of Greater Manassas and Prince William County in January. These passionate students spent weeks meticulously designing, sewing, and altering their wearable art which highlighted recyclable products throughout each piece.

MANASSAS, VA. June 22, 2017 – American Disposal Services celebrated National Garbage Man Day with daily surprises for their waste and recycling drivers and helpers. The week was dedicated to honoring the waste hauling teams for their hard work, and loyalty to keeping our communities clean.
“The men and women of the waste hauling industry don’t receive the recognition they deserve. They start as early as 2 A.M. and cannot end their days until every home and trash can is collected. Our workers have one of the most physically enduring careers out there. We are pleased to see they have earned their own special day” -Kevin Edwards, General Manager

Manassas, VA, November 1, 2016 – American Disposal Services has partnered with carton recycling nonprofit, Carton Council, to launch an awareness campaign to increase recycling of food and beverage carton packaging throughout parts of the DC Metro area. The campaign aims to further boost Suburban Washington’s recycling rate by letting residents know that food and beverage cartons such as those used for milk and orange juice can now be recycled and should be thrown in their Single Stream recycling bin, the same place where residents currently recycle their glass, plastic and cans.
“Nearly 60% of U.S. households currently recycle their cartons, and we are proud to be part of the communication and education effort that aids in the reduction of trash in landfills,” said American Disposal Services’ Communications Director, Anna Wilkinson. “This campaign will help to further boost the recycling rates of the counties we service as well as encourage all residents to recycle their food and beverage cartons.”
