 The Tidd Home

WOBURN, MA, Wednesday, September 3, 2008—The Tidd Home, a unique residence for senior women for 120 years, announced today that, starting in September, it will open its doors to male residents. As it has for 120 years, The Tidd Home provides safe and affordable housing for seniors, allowing them to continue to lead independent, fulfilled lives. 
 

 

The Tidd Home, with 14 residential suites and gracious areas for dining, setting, is located at 74 Elm St. in Woburn. The home was incorporated in 1887. Initial quarters for the home were on Mt.

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

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

I get asked all the time what can I do with rechargeable batteries that no longer work or are no longer needed.

On Saturday, April 19th from 10:00AM to 2:00PM Woburn will be celebrating its annual Earth Day program at the Woburn Mall, 300 Mishawum Road and is being sponsored by WREN (Woburn Residents Environmental Network) and The Woburn Mall. The reason for this letter is to ask you to get involved in some way with our program. There is no charge to set up a display and tables can be provided also at no cost.

At our appliance collections and when I was involved with the cities quarterly collections we would get asked about other items and how to dispose of them.

One such item is latex paints.

The following is an excerpt from the cities web site which explains how to dispose of these non hazardous items in their solid form.
