Just in time for spring cleaning and Earth Day: Alexandria's Free Metal Pick Up Day.

Available exclusively to residents who live in the city limits, this year's event is set to take place Tuesday, April 28.


City residents are encouraged to get rid of old, junky metal objects that have been cluttering up their yard, garage or basement by placing the items on the boulevard.

City crews will haul the items away at no charge.
