Altavesta School PTO Appliance/CRT/Freon Bearing Device Recycling Event

Appliance / Freon Bearing / CRT Device Recycling

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

Paul Medeiros has found and 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 offered by the City of Woburn through Waste Management and will also be a fundraiser for local organizations that will sponsor these events. Provide jobs with a Massachusetts company. 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 $22,000 dollars for local organizations so far. So clean out those basements, attics, garages,trailers and warehouses and bring them down!

This collection will be on Saturday, May 15, 2007 from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. at Altavesta School on Main Street / Route 38 with the proceeds going to the many Altavesta School programs and projects.

The next event is being held at Saint Barbara's Church on Cambridge Road on Saturday, June 21, 2008 from 9A.M. to 1 P.M benefitting W.R.E.N. Woburn Residents Environment Network and their many projects throughout Woburn.
