Marlborough Rotary Club sponsors Community Recycling Day Oct. 22

Marlborough – The members of the Marlborough Rotary Club suggest that it's time for everyone to sort through and collect all their unwanted computers, electronics, appliances, and more in order to be ready to bring them to the Whitcomb Middle School (formerly Marlborough Middle School) Saturday, Oct. 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., for the Community Recycling Day.

Almost everything that has been sitting around in your attic, basement, or garage can be recycled at this Community Recycling Day event for just $30 per car load or truck load. Items include electronics of all types – computers, CPUs, monitors, games, accessories, cell phones, VCRs laptops, cameras, cables, wires, keyboards and mice; all electrical equipment – small appliances, motors, shop equipment, heaters, fans, extension cords and lamps; vehicle batteries; large appliances – washers, dryers, microwaves, AC units, freezers, and refrigerators with freon; yard and lawn equipment – mowers and snow blowers (no fluids); metal and plastic – children's toys, yard furniture; and televisions – 50¢ per pound.

All items, except televisions, are only $30 per car load or pick-up truck load. And, televisions are only 50¢ per pound. For those who have only one or two items for disposal, there will be a reduced single item fee.

Marlborough Rotary Club President Elaine McDonald has spearheaded this new event for the club.

“We are so excited about this event!” remarked McDonald. “This project benefits everyone involved. People can rid themselves of all their junk and gain space in their homes for a very low cost; the environment is better for recycling all this junk; and the Marlborough Rotary Club Foundation will make a percentage of the fees to continue the club's service to children and families of our community, literacy projects, clean water projects, and more.”

The Rotary Club of Marlborough has supported the youth and charitable organizations of the community and the Rotary Foundation's efforts to enhance our world since 1922. Men and women who want to serve their communities and the efforts toward world peace are welcome.
