2019 Fairfax County Farmers Markets
Kings Park "Clean Up Day"
Kings Park “Clean Up Day” will be held Saturday, May 18th from 8:00 to 11:30 a.m. Large trucks from Fairfax County will be stationed in the parking lot by the basketball courts off the Trafalgar Court entrance to KP Park for disposal of large items that trash companies will not pick up. You can take your items directly to the trucks at Trafalgar or call Roy Warner to schedule a pick up by neighborhood volunteers. More volunteers are needed so please contact Roy if you can help (and remember to bring gloves!). The Kings Park Civic Association will rent at least two 14’ U-Haul trucks to pick up your large items and deliver them to the county trucks but you must call at least a week in advance to schedule a pick up.
KPCA dues make this service possible. KPCA membership is required if you need help with your large items. Volunteers will have membership forms with them when they pick up items from your home, so you can join the KPCA that day if you have not yet done so.
Our community is indebted to all those who have helped in years past. We are grateful to all our volunteers for their assistance. Call Roy at 703-250-5328 to volunteer or schedule a pick up. Please do not wait until the last minute as we cannot honor last minute requests for help. Thank you.

A neighbor recently replaced their Orangeburg pipe after suffering from a relatively minor Orangeburg pipe backup. Pat Priest and the Boscherts decided to explore replacement of our pipes before such an opportunity announced itself.
I was hesitant to spend the money to replace our Orangeburg pipe, but a quick search about building material lifetimes convinced me to join the prevention replacement effort. If properly installed, cast iron lasts from 75-100 years, PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) pipe (the replacement material) lasts 400+ years, and Orangeburg pipe has a designed lifetime of 50 years. That’s right, the Orangeburg pipe still in use in Kings Park is at or past its designed lifetime.
