3. Recycle Inspection Program:  Do you know what you can put in the county’s blue mixed recycle bins? Apparently, many of us do not. Last year the county received about 7,500 tons of non-recyclable items, so this year inspectors from the Department of Environmental Protection are visiting residential areas as part of the “Oops Tag” program.

4. (ICYMI) Metro Train Service:  Metro rail service is now open until midnight every day. The extended hours started Sunday. In September, trains will start running until 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
