As we head into Memorial Day Weekend, known to many as the Unofficial Start of Summer, we would first like to take an opportunity to recognize and honor the men and women in uniform who sacrificed everything for our freedom as we know it. Our business has deep roots with veterans, veterans organizations and entities that serve our vets. We ask everyone to take time this weekend (and all year long, for that matter) to remember those who have given their lives as well as the folks they left behind.

As we begin the summer season, everyone should note that communities all over the Mid Atlantic region have great recycling and hazardous waste collection events. Here are a few that are coming up in your area:
