GRAFTON – Boy Scout Troop 107 will hold its spring bottle drive on Saturday, April 6, from 9 a.m. to noon. 

Bring your deposit bottles and cans to the back of the Grafton Municipal Center, 30 Providence Road.

The troop is taking the following precautions for everyone’s safety:

– Please rinse out your bottles and cans ahead of time.

– Please presort your containers: soda cans, beer cans, glass, 1-liter plastic, 2-liter plastic and smaller plastic (“personal size” drinks).

When you arrive at the back parking lot, you will be directed where to leave your containers. Once you depart, Scouts and parents will then retrieve them for processing.

If you need assistance getting the containers from your car, signal an adult leader. Someone will collect them while you remain in your car.

Scouts and parents will be working in family units, in shifts, with masks and gloves, and maintaining physical distancing at all times.

If you can’t make the drop off, the Boy Scouts can pick up at your home (Grafton only). Contact us at [email protected] to schedule this, and include your name and address. Place your clean and presorted empties in a highly visible spot by 8 a.m. on April 6, and the Boy Scouts will do the rest.

The Scouts will hold additional summer and fall bottle drives in 2024.

Money raised from bottle drives supports the Scouts’ campouts, activities, community service projects and routine expenses. In addition, 10% of bottle drive earnings are donated to a local charity.
