Wachusett Region Recycling Events – 9/7/13


Princeton will hold their annual town-wide yard sale on Saturday, September 28th. It will run from 8am to 2pm no matter what the weather is. See the First Congregational Church of Princeton website for more information. If you’d rather donate items for someone else to sell, you have 2 options. The Friends of Mechanics Hall are collecting gently used items on Saturday, Sept. 14th from 9:30am to noon and Tuesday, Sept. 17th and 24th from 3 to 5pm. The Princeton Historical Society is collecting donations of old or used items (no clothing or appliances) at the Princeton Center (the old gym) on Thursday, Sept, 26, 4-7 p.m. or Friday, Sept. 27, 9 a.m. to noon.

The Town of Holden is sponsoring a Personal Document Shredding Event on Saturday, September 21 from 9am to 12pm. It will be held at the Senior Center (enter the parking lot via Main Street). A company called ProShred Security will provide onsite shredding. This is a good opportunity to get rid of old records with personally identifiable information such as social security numbers, health insurance ID numbers, or medical information. Holden residents can participate for free, otherwise it is $5. Call 508-210-5540 for more information.

Also on September 21, the Wachusett Watershed Regional Recycling Center (131 Raymond Huntington Highway, West Boylston) will be open for recycling. They will be collecting paints and hazardous household chemicals on this day in addition to their regularly accepted items. Hours are 8am to noon. They are also open on Tuesdays from9 to 11am and Wednesdays from 2:30 to 4:30pm. If you have clothing that you don’t think is worth donating to a charity because it is stained or ripped, you can bring it to them for recycling. They are now collecting fabrics and used clothing, including shoes that have lost their mates.

Registration for the RecycleBowl competition is open for the 2013 school year. This competition was developed to get schools to start or increase their recycling. Schools with kindergarten through twelfth grade are eligible to participate. Compete against other schools in the same category or across the country, collect recyclables in the school only or from the community, compete in-state or with schools across the country.
