Rick Galliher owned the Chantilly franchise of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? for 18 years. His career taught him a lot about how waste is handled in Northern Virginia, especially how hard it is to recycle our common household items. Rick is a board member of the Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions (FACS) and their Solid Waste Team Lead, a member of the Virginia DEQ’s Waste Diversion and Recycling Task Force, and a member of the Virginia Recycling Association.
