First Parish’s Thirteenth Annual Metal Recycling Day

Saturday, October 1
9:00 to noon, rain or shine
In the parking lot at First Parish Church
Proceeds benefit the Bridgewater Food Pantry
Co-sponsored by the Green Sanctuary Committee and Bridgewater Recycling, Inc.

Keep collecting metal of all kinds for our annual recycling drive. Stoves, pipes, file cabinets, bikes, shelving, grills and lots more are needed. It’s not just recycling–we often find new homes or uses for items you bring! Our past collections have netted close to $2150 in donations to the Bridgewater Food Pantry.  

 Just drive up to the parking lot and drop your metal off! You can also arrange to leave your metal at church before the day of the event. Let’s make this year’s drive a big success!! Spread the word to your family, friends, and co-workers—all are welcome! See you there!!

Please note that we are unable to accept some items (see list below). Please contact Debbie Baumgarten — or 774-240-1307 with questions.
