Wachusett Region Recycling Events – 12/14/13


The West Boylston Boy Scout Troop 151 is holding their monthly redeemable bottle and can drive at the Major Edwards Elementary school, Crescent Street, West Boylston this Saturday, December 14th from 10am to 1pm. All bottles and cans that are returnable in Massachusetts are accepted. And there’s no need for you to get out of your car. Very courteous Boy Scouts will take your cans and bottles and thank you in return.

Also on Saturday, December 14th, Worcester is holding its 12th annual gun buyback program. Guns must be unloaded and wrapped in a bag in order to be dropped off. The program is anonymous. All types of guns can be dropped off. They can be old or new, working or not. Gift certificates in the following amounts will be given in return: $75 for an automatic/semi-automatic weapon, $50 for handgun, $25 for a long gun. Non-working guns will not qualify for a gift certificate. Ammunition and gun accessories are also accepted.

The Wachusett Watershed Regional Recycling Center is open on Tuesdays (9-11am), Wednesdays (2:30-4:30pm), and the 3rd Saturday of the month, December 21st, from 8 to 11am. They accept lots of items you may want to be getting rid of, such as tvs and other electronics, furniture, tires, and propane tanks. Check their website for what they accept for free and for a small fee.

Rocky’s Ace Hardware stores in Holden (160 Reservoir Street) and Northboro (261 West Main Street) are collecting unused packaged pet food that will be donated to the Worcester and Sterling animal shelters. Donations are accepted until December 23rd.
