July 11, 2023.  Residents are invited to donate their used electronic equipment and electric appliances plus old bicycles at St. Eulalia’s 50 Ridge Street parking lot at this Saturday.  They’ll be collected for a minimal fee by Green Day Recycling, a company in central Massachusetts that, according to their marketing manager Brian Wood, is committed to reducing the amount of e-waste that ends up in landfills. 

“We are accepting a wide range of electronics and items,” says Wood. “From small items like electric toothbrushes to larger appliances like refrigerators and everything in between. The costs vary depending on the item, but generally we charge $5.00 each for small electronics like printers, DVD players, computer towers, and other items of equivalent size.  $10 each for small household appliances like coffee machines and toasters. $15 each for a flat screen computer monitor. $20 each for medium sized appliances like microwaves, dehumidifiers and air conditioners. $25 each for large appliances like washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, stoves, grills, exercise, equipment, and yard equipment. The TV costs start at $25 and go up to $40 depending on the screen size. There are also many items that we accept for no charge, including bicycles in any condition, cell phones and tablets, wires cables, chargers, keyboards, and batteries.”  This compares to similar fees for such items at the town transfer station. 

St. Eulalia has allowed this event for more than ten years and the parish gets up to 15% of the fees.  “All of the collected materials are brought to Worcester to our partner facility, where everything will be broken down and separated, then shipped to other facilities, where the materials are melted down to be recycled in a responsible and eco-friendly manner,” says Wood.  He adds, “computer hard drives and personal data will be destroyed during the recycling process.”
