Wachusett Region Recycling Events-11/3/12

Donate your gently-used winter coats to the One Warm Coat drive at JC Penney at the Mall at Whitney Field, 100 Commercial Drive, Leominster. Adults, kids and infants winter coats and jackets are being collected until December 21st. Coat drives are also being held at other locations – see the One Warm Coat website to search for convenient locations all over the country.

For those of you saving your books to donate to the Friends of the Gale Free Library’s Book Cellar, note that they are not accepting donations at the moment. Hold onto your intended donations for a little while longer.

As we’re working our way towards Thanksgiving, you may be thinking about putting up holiday lights around your yard or house. If you find that your strings of lights don’t work, you can recycle them. Send them to HolidayLEDS and they will pass them along to a third party recycler. In return, they will give you a 25% coupon off HolidayLEDs.com LED Christmas lights. You can send your lights to HolidayLEDs.com, Attn: Recycling Program, 1737 Spring Arbor Rd., PMB 206, Jackson, MI 49203. See their website for more information.

Have your kids finished their soccer seasons for the year? If they’re going to outgrow their shoes by the time they play again next year, donate them to PeacePassers.org to be passed on to others who need them. Donations have been made within the US and other countries. You can also donate sets of team jerseys, shorts, or socks, goalie uniforms and gloves, or soccer balls. Contact them at peacepassersinfo@gmail.com and they’ll let you know the best location to which you can mail your donation.

Wachusett Watershed Regional Recycling Center at 131 Raymond Huntington Highway, West Boylston, MA, is open each Wednesday afternoon from 2:30 to 4:30 pm except for the day before Thanksgiving. They accept a number of items for free, such as batteries, bicycles, redeemable bottles and cans, and #6 styrofoam. Other items, such as TVs, computer monitors, small appliances, furniture, and tires, are accepted for a fee. It’s also open for hazardous materials recycling on Saturday, November 17th from 8am to noon.  See their website for more information about what they collect, and the fees they charge.
