Council of Social Concern Appliance, Freon Bearing, CRT, Electronic Device Recycling Collection

Saturday, June 15, 2013 - 9:00am

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 and the Medeiros Crew Recycling Team 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 high cost associated wi...th 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 $100,000 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!

This collection will be held on Saturday, June 15th from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. at Woburn’s Spence Farm located at 41 Wyman Street, in Woburn benefitting the Council of Social Concern. A portion of the proceeds will be going towardsa  scholarship fund set up for a Woburn High School graduating senior to continue their education in the field of environmental education.
