Learn about vital City services and meet the staff responsible for keeping Alexandria mobile, clean, safe, and eco-friendly.

Composting Station
Learn more about the city’s composting efforts and drop off your weekly compost donation.

Mock Traffic Corner
A replica of a street corner — complete with a miniature working stoplight — will be used to highlight the importance of pedestrian safety and help teach children to be aware, alert, and attentive when crossing the street.
