Appliance Recycling Drive to benefit Woburn High School Scholarship Fund


Wondering what to do with that old television, computer monitor or appliance that is broken, unwanted or unused and just taking up space?

The Medeiros Crew is working with a Massachusetts company that will collect these items at drop off sites set up throughout Woburn at various times throughout the year. 

This is an excellent opportunity to recycle these items at a minimal cost compared to the higher cost associated with curbside appliance recycling programs and will also be a fundraiser for local organizations that will sponsor these events. Another good thing and possibly the best part of this program is that it is open to residents from any and all communities, not just Woburn, as well as any and all business entities. With your help these collections have raised over $125,000 dollars for local Woburn organizations with a portion going to the Woburn high school scholarship fund!
