Styrofoam Saturday 9-1

This from Medfield Green –



This Saturday is Week 5 of Medfield Green Month

9-1 at the Transfer Station

It’s the final week of MGM in October! 

Are you a darker shade of green

because you have been recycling all month?

 Refoam-it will be collecting Styrofoam to be recycled.  Foam items DO NOT have to display the recycling symbol 6 in the triangle with the PS underneath it, but do need to be cleaned and rinsed.  Refoamit will accept packing blocks, produce and meat trays, take out containers (please rinse), hot cups such as Dunkin’ Donuts, Honey Dew and Cumberland Farms (without paper or cardboard infused), foam egg cartons, trays, white insulation sheets, #4 PE Polyethylene foam,  bubble wrap and packing peanuts (bagged separately from your foam). 

THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT:  plastic utensils, foam cups infused with cardboard or paper such as McDonald’s, Newman and Burger King (ice tea cup), biodegradable meat trays for example GenPak without the recycling symbol, cardboard egg cartons, soft foam pads, food containers with plastic film attached (some ground turkey comes in these containers), blue or pink insulation sheets. (Refoamit will also be doing a collection, which is open to the public, at the Christ Lutheran Church of Natick, 113 Union St., Sat. Nov 7th 9-12, if you can’t make it to the transfer station this Sat).
The next Styrofoam collection in Medfield

will be January 2, 2016 at the Transfer Station! 

 The discounted backyard compost bins were so popular that we sold out of our stock!  We will continue to take orders (only for compost bins, not the kits with the kitchen buckets and liners) this Saturday from 9-1 at the Transfer Station.  The bins will be available for pick up in a few weeks.  See attached order form.  Checks made out to Town of Medfield
This is the last Saturday for the Swap.   
Last day for drop offs is Friday, October 30th. It closes for the season on Saturday, October 31st at noon and volunteers will pack up from 12-3. If you wish to help pack up, let us know by calling 359-7251. BOXES NEEDED!   Thanks!

Thanks to all of the volunteers who spend many, many hours at the Swap!  It is a great example of the purpose of Medfield Green Month –  Donation, Reuse and Recycling and it is open May-October during Transfer Station hours.

Hope to see you at the Transfer Station
the place to be in October!

 Next Medfield Green Month will be in May, 2016!
