WREN Appliance/CRT/Freon Bearing Device Recycling Collection Event

Wondering what to do with that old television, computer monitor or appliance that is broken, unwanted or unused and just taking up space? If you want to get rid of items before the summer at reduced cost from curbside collection prices don't miss this one as it is the last collection until September.

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 $42,000 dollars for local organizations in two years!

So clean out those basements, attics, garages and warehouses and bring your items down!

This collection will be on Saturday, June 20, 2009 from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. at Saint Barbara's Church located on 138 Cambridge Road in Woburn benefitting WREN (Woburn Residents Environmental Network).and their many projects and programs. A portion of the proceeds from these collections are used for a scholarship fund for a Woburn High School graduating senior that will be continuing their education in the field of environmental education.


If you miss or cannot attend this collection the next one will be on Saturday, September 19, 2009 at the Woburn Daily Times, 1 Arrow Drive in Woburn from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M benefitting Woburn Council of Social Concern
