Another Day of Hard Work and Volunteering in the Community

Early Saturday morning, Melissa Landau of Flynn Realty and Abrams Landau, was at work at the Reston, Virginia branch of Fulton Bank taking boxes of paper to be shredded and recycled. She and her Keller Williams team were also collecting cans of paint for proper, safe disposal.

This local branch of the real estate company Keller Williams often gives back to the community. “Melissa My Realtor” has participated in the “Spooktacular” Bradley Farms haunted house, trick-or-treating at Herndon’s Marriott Hotel for children with special needs and other charitable community events.

The paper-shredding event was timely as school are letting out so there are a lot of old papers and boxes to be cleaned out. For people who are getting their house ready for sale, a deep spring-cleaning is a great idea to increase home value. Clearing out space enables the professional stagers at Keller Williams to maximize the attractiveness of a property for sale.

Herndon injury and disability lawyer Doug Landau brought a dozen bankers boxes of files pursuant to the Abrams Landau, Ltd. file retention and document destruction policy. These files were over seven years old, and shredding them to be reused helps keep things green. Lawyer Landau also brought cans of old paint, so that they could be safely disposed of and not cause pollution to the Chesapeake water system. His father, Norman J. Landau, wrote the seminal “Environmental Law Handbook” over 40 years ago, so environmental stewardship is an issue that is important to the entire Landau family.
