Techno-Trash eCycling Fundraiser

Sunday, October 9th, 8 am -2 pm

6 Lockes Village Road, Wendell, MA (Across from the town common)

Turn your broken or unwanted techno-trash into a beautiful Edible Forest Garden. How? Bring anything that runs on a battery or has a cord, with a few exceptions* and for a small fee, you can drop your unwanted electronics or swap any that are in working order. The leftovers and items beyond repair will be properly recycled at GreenMonsterEcycling.com, a nearby electronics recycling center, which has a ZERO landfill policy. 100% of the materials are broken down and recycled in an environmentally sensitive manner.

Benefits the new Wendell Permaculture Edible Forest Garden.
