WREN Appliance/CRT/Freon Bearing Device Recycling Collection Event
Appliance / Freon Bearing / CRT Device Recycling Event
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 $24,000 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, June 21, 2008 from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. at St. Barbaras Church on Cambridge Road with the proceeds going to the many WREN (Woburn Residents' Environmental Network) programs and projects.
The next event after this is being held on Saturday, September 20, 2008 from 9A.M. to 1 P.M. so if you don't want these items sitting around all summer, be sure to get to this one or you will have no alternative but to pay the higher prices at curside or wait until the fall collection.
