Appliance Recycling

Recycling at Spence Farm......Spread the Word.....LAST ONE OF THE YEAR

Appliance/Freon Bearing/CRT Device Recycling Collection
 (Please notice that some prices have changed)

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 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 $90,000 for local Woburn organizations with a portion going to the Woburn High School Scholarship Fund in the almost 4 years! So clean out those basements, attics, garages and warehouses and bring your items down!

This collection will be held on Saturday, November 19 from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. at Woburn’s Spence Farm located at 41 Wyman Street, in Woburn benefitting the Linscott-Rumford PTO and all their activities.  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.

We appreciate your support of our collection program. If you miss or cannot attend this collection the next one will not be until March.   So see you in the spring.

The Woburn Council of Social Concern and Food Pantry puts together Holiday Food Baskets for needy families in the area.  One local organization, WREN (Woburn Residents' Environmental Network) pitched in last year (and years prior) by donating 16 Holiday baskets for Thanksgiving and 16 more for Christmas.  If you would like to help by purchasing necessary items and donating them to make these baskets, please see list (below) of what could be donated or contact Rodney Flynn at:  FVirgos01801@aol.com.
