How good are you at separating your cans and plastic bottles from your comingled recyclables?
If you’re following the Transfer Station rules, you can feel good about your charitable efforts.
According to the Southborough Education Foundation, charities receive almost $20,000 in proceeds from can and bottle redemptions per year.
Each week, the Southborough Transfer Station allows local charities to bag cans and bottles and take them for redemption.
The SEF Board bagged all of the cans and plastic bottles that residents had put in the Transfer Station bin [on November 20] to raise money for this year’s grants. It is a messy job but the board had fun. They ended up with sixty three bags which should generate about $500 for them.
So, when you handle your recycling, remember to sort your cans and bottles!
(I’m sure SEF would also like you to remember their Apple Award drive going on now.)
