Wachusett Region Recycling Events-7/30/11

ReFoamIt is holding a styrofoam recycling event at Grace Congregational Church in Framingham, MA on Saturday, July 23rd, 2011 from 10am to 3pm. The church is located at 76 Salem End Rd. This event is open to non-residents of Framingham. Styrofoam has a number 6 on it and is found in things like packing blocks and peanuts, meat and food packing trays, coffee cups without embedded plastic, and white insulation sheets.

A clothing drive is being held Saturday, August 13, 2011 from 9am to 12 pm at the Shrewsbury, MA Town Hall. This drive is being run by Andy’s Attic, an organization that collects new and gently used clothing to be donated to needy teenagers in the area. Clothing should be clean and in wearable condition.

Princeton’s townwide yard sale is scheduled for  Saturday, September 24, 2011 from 8am to 2pm. To sign up for participation (which typically gets your location on a map so people can find you) send a $25 check to First Congregational Church of Princeton, UCC, Attn: Yard sale, 14 Mountain Rd., Princeton, 01541 before September 15th.

Rutland Senior Girl Scout Troop #30862 is collecting the following new or gently-used items for tornado relief efforts in Brimfield and Sturbridge MA: tents, tarps, air mattresses, tote containers, flashlights, and work gloves. They are also collecting  new underwear and socks, diapers, baby wipes, plastic tableware, and non-perishable food items. Collection boxes are located in the following locations in Rutland, MA: St. Patrick’s Church, the First Congregational Church, Colonial Convenience Store at Four Corners, Wachusett Lumber, Rutland Library, and the Council on Aging Meal Site on Glenwood Rd.

Donate your gently-used children’s books to the Sterling Fire Department for their literacy partnership with Reading Tree, a non-profit organization that supplies books to  disadvantaged kids in the region. The collection box is located in the rear of the fire department’s parking lot at 5 Main Street, Sterling, MA.

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.
