If you have non-perishable foods you’re not going to eat, why not donate them? You may have bought one too many cans of of green beans for the holiday casserole that you haven’t yet eaten. Or you mistakenly bought crunchy, not smooth, peanut butter. Unopened perishable items and personal care items, such as toothbrushes and soap, can be donated at Herlihy Insurance in the Rutland Plaza, 83 Main Street, Rutland, MA, 2nd floor) and Rutland Pharmacy, 18 Maple Avenue, Rutland, MA. The Rutland Girls Scouts are holding this drive throughout 2010. There is also a collection box near the registers at the Big Y on Reservoir Street, Holden, MA for packaged Wachusett Food Pantry donations.

Contact Brian Wood, a Boy Scout with a troop from Sutton, MA to have your automobile, truck, motorcycle or boat’s lead acid battery picked up at your home and properly recycled by a company in Sterling, MA. His email address is: j.wood36@yahoo.com.
