• Installment of Recycling bins for Loudoun County Parks

        Loudoun County’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) has begun placing recycling bins for bottles and cans next to existing litter receptacles at its three most frequentedf acilities, Claude Moore Park and Recreation Center in Sterling, the Potomack Lakes Sportsplex in Cascades, and Franklin Park in Purcellville.

        Temporary recycling bins for special events and summer sporting activities have been used for several years at park sites thanks to a coordinated effort from PRCS, the Office of Solid Waste Management,and Loudoun County Public Schools Department of Facilities Services.Now with funding from the Virginia Litter Prevention and Recycling Grant Program, the parks are able to install permanent recycling bins that may be used throughout the year.

        PRCS is excited about this grant program which has allowed our department to offer this important opportunity to the community,” said Steve Torpy, Assistant Director for Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services. “PRCS takes its role of managing many of Loudoun County’s great natural resources very seriously and this program is yet another tool that we can use to educate the public about the negative effects of litter and the positive effects of recycling.”
