[ARCHIVED] Regional Drive-thru Recycling and Reuse Event - June 22, 2019

Items being collected include electronics, Styrofoam (white #6 only), textiles, books and more. All towns are welcome to participate. 

Fees (cash only) are as follows: small electronics (visit for list of items) $10 each; monitors and televisions $20 each. Styrofoam is being collected at no charge (only #6 white – no food containers or packaging peanuts and free of stickers and tape) and assorted clothing and textiles (clean, dry and odor free) to benefit non-profit organizations. This includes used clothing and textiles, shoes, purses, wallets, belts, sheets, curtains, pillows, table cloths (holes and rips okay). 

For the Cummings Veterinary Center at Tufts University and local animal shelters (label Animal on the bag), bring clean, old, worn sheets, towels and blankets. New or like-new craft and office supplies are being donated to The Great Exchange. Other new items being collected at the June 22 event include used mascara wands (wash with Dawn dish detergent and dry; being donated to animal wildlife refuge centers), dried out colored markers, Sharpies, highlighters and dry erase markers 

The event is hosted by WE CAN and the communities of Grafton, Northborough, Shrewsbury and Westborough, and is open to all surrounding communities. 

No early birds, please. Volunteers welcome!
