And as long as I’m reminding you about that, here are some other things going on this weekend, including pumpkin painting.

Saturday, October 19, 2013:

  • DPW’s Hazardous Waste Day (9:00 am – 12:00 pm) @ Southborough Transfer Station: Disposal of “household hazardous waste” allowed today. You must have a valid permit to participate.

Thanks for the headsup about hazardous waste day at transfer station. Did not know about it until reading about it this morning. We managed to get to TS with some old paints, pesticides, etc., before noon. Thanks again, Beth. You are doing a great job!
