North Grafton, MA - A regional drive-through recycling and reuse event is returning to North Grafton, MA, on Saturday, November 2 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 200 Westboro Road. 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 wecan-ma.org 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, tablecloths (holes and rips okay). Funds raised from clothing and textiles will be donated to Fresh Start who will also be collecting small household and kitchen items like small counter top appliances. For the Cummings Veterinary Center at Tufts University and local animal shelters (label Animal on the bag), bring clean, old, worn towels and blankets. New or like-new craft and office supplies are being donated to The Great Exchange.
The event is hosted by WE CAN and the communities of Grafton, Northborough, Shrewsbury and Westborough, and is open to all surrounding communities. It will be held on the grounds of Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. No early birds, please.
