Wachusett Region Recycling Events – November 2016

Now that we are preparing for the winter season, you may be realizing you have coats from previous years that you are planning to replace. Why not donate them to the Worcester County Sheriffs Office’s Annual Coat Drive? Any new or gently-used adult or children’s winter coats can be dropped off at many locations, including those below. Or call 508-796-2638 to schedule a pick up. The drive hopes to surpass last year’s 3000 donations by the end of November 2016 and distribute them through local community organizations. This is a good opportunity to hold an event at your work or school or in your community. See their website for more information.
