James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn Appliance, Freon Bearing, CRT, Electronic Device Recycling Collection

From date: 
2016-05-21T13:00:00

The James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn is once again partnering with Medeiros Crew Recycling on Saturday, May 21st from 9 AM to 1 PM at the Spence Farm property located at 41 Wyman Street in Woburn. This is an excellent opportunity to recycle these items at a minimal cost, while supporting a local non-profit organization. 

There is a significant cost savings compared to the high cost associated with curbside appliance recycling programs.  In Woburn, the cost for curbside pick-up of many of these items has increased once again in 2016.

The drop-off recycling drives at Spence Farm are open to residents and businesses from all communities, not just Woburn. 

With your support, these collections have raised over $150,000 for local non-profit organizations, as well as donations to the Woburn Memorial High School Scholarship Fund.  So clean out those basements, attics, garages and warehouses and bring your items to the next drive on May 21st!

The May 21st collection will benefit the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn to help defray the cost of their programs and activities.  Troop 519 will also be collecting returnable bottles and cans at this drive.

New this year, we will be accepting donations of all types and sizes of gently used ice skates.  These skates will be re-sharpened and saved for use by the public at a Winter Festival planned for February 2017 as part of Woburn’s 375th anniversary celebration.  There is no charge to drop off ice skates.
