Medfield Green's Annual Recycling Day to be Held May 5
Medfield Green's fourth annual Medfield Green Day – a one-stop community zero waste day – will be held Saturday, May 5 at the American Legion Hall.
Medfield Green has announced it will be holding its fourth annual Medfield Green Day, sponsored by the Medfield Employers and Merchants Organization (MEMO), on Saturday, May 5 from 9 a.m. to noon at the _, Peter Kristof Way in Medfield.
Last year, _ according to Medfield Green's Steve Catanese.
"People got a lot of things cleaned up and the organizations collecting were really happy," Catanese told Medfield Patch following last year's event. "There was a lot of neat stuff going on. At the end of the swap at noon we were overwhelmed."
The goal of Green Day is to find a new home for things you no longer need or use. Keeping items out of our landfills will help the environment and will also benefit people in need.
A large variety of items will be collected and donated to different charities or recycled for reuse. Some of the items to be collected are: clothing, shoes, toys, baby equipment (no car seats and no cribs), small household items, bikes ($10 suggested donation), books, electronics ($5-$25 disposal fee), old eyeglasses, mixed rigid plastics (i.e. Little Tikes/Fisher Price, lawn chairs) and all metal appliances (large and small).
There will also be a "Sports Equipment Swap Area," located inside the Legion, where people can bring sports equipment and athletic gear, including shoes they no longer need and trade it in for something new. Medfield Green asks that no skis be brought to the swap.
