Reeves School PTO Appliance/Freon Bearing/CRT Device Recycling

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 $78,000 dollars for local Woburn organizations with a portion going to the Woburn high school scholarship fund in a bit more than 3 years! So clean out those basements, attics, garages and warehouses and bring your items down!

This collection will be on Saturday, March 19 from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. at the Reeves School located at 240 Lexington St, in Woburn and will benefit the many Reeves School and PTO projects and programs. 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.

If you miss or cannot attend this collection the next one will be on Saturday, April 16 at a new and location Woburn’s Spence Farm which is located at 41 Wyman Street in Woburn from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M.
