This is a friendly reminder on the recycling procedure here at Windgate II. The bins are for "loose" recyclable items only. Anything bagged and placed in the bins, even if it contains recyclable items, will be treated as regular trash. Also, cardboard, newspapers and paper items should be placed outside of the bins in paper bags. No glass should be placed in the bins. Glass can be recycled by bringing it to the Arlington County recycling drop-off center at the Trades Center on S. Arlington Mill Drive.  
Shut Off Hose Bibs
Thanks to residents who have already winterized hose bibs. If you have not already done so, please take the following steps to winterize your front and rear hose bibs, which will prevent costly repairs and pipe rupture: 
1. Turn OFF the interior hose bib valve, generally located above your hot water heater. Leave off for the winter. 
2. Next, OPEN your front and rear spigots to drain all the water in the pipe.  
3. Finally, leave the spigots OPEN for the winter.
