I wanted to pass this information along to my fellow Arlington, MA and surrounding area residents. I've copied it from the Town of Arlington's email notice I got this morning:
Two Recycling Collections in Lexington This Saturday, July 18:
Free e-Waste Collection, 9AM-3PM, Lexington High School
The Town of Lexington, in conjunction with Metech, is sponsoring a free household electronics recycling event on Saturday, July 18, between 9AM and 3PM at Lexington High School. The event is open to the general public, including Arlington residents, and no appointments are needed. All electronic items are accepted except major appliances, dehumidifiers, and air conditioners. Please note, contrary to our last message, microwaves are accepted. Metech is also offering electronics collections for non-profits until the end of August. For a complete list of acceptable items and more information please visit arlingtonma.gov/recycle.
Household Hazardous Waste Collection, 9AM-2PM, Minuteman Facility
The next collection is Saturday, July 18th, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Minuteman Hazardous Waste Facility located at 60 Hartwell Avenue in Lexington. Proof of residency will be required to drop off any household hazardous waste. A list of what is considered household hazardous waste and future 2009 collection dates can be found online at arlingtonma.gov/recycle.
Remember - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
