The Medeiros Crew Electronics and Appliance Recycling collection drives at Spence Farm are back! The next one will take place on Saturday, April 20 from 9AM to 1PM and proceeds will go towards the Altavesta School PTO's many programs and projects!

These collections have raised over $100,000 dollars for local Woburn organizations with a portion going to the Woburn high school scholarship fund!

If you have any old, broken or unused appliances simply taking up space, consider recycling them for a worthy cause. This collection drive is an excellent opportunity to recycle these items at a minimal cost compared to the high cost associated with curbside appliance recycling programs.
