Appliance Recycling Event

From date: 


"Saving the World..... One Air Conditioner at a Time"

Appliance, Freon Bearing, CRT, Electronic Device Recycling Collection

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

This collection will be held on Saturday, May 23 from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. at Woburn’s Spence Farm located at 41 Wyman Street. A portion of the proceeds will be going towards the scholarship fund for a Woburn High School graduating senior that will be continuing their education in the field of environmental education.

Paul Medeiros and the Medeiros Crew Recycling Team has found and is working with a Massachusetts company that will collect these items at our drop off site which is now Spence Farm.

This is an excellent opportunity to recycle these items at a minimal cost compared to the high 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 $140,000 dollars for local Woburn organizations with a portion going to the Woburn High School Scholarship Fund!
So clean out those basements, attics, garages and warehouses and bring your items down!
