Melrose, MA — The City of Melrose and Melrose Bank are cosponsoring a citywide drop off recycling event on Saturday, June 19. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the City Yard, 72 Tremont Street. PROSHRED® will be at the event to shred personal papers.
"The community shredding and recycling day is an important city initiative" said Jeffrey D. Jones, president of Melrose Bank. "The event provides an opportunity for Melrose residents and businesses to reduce their environmental impact and protect themselves from identity theft, all while raising funds for two very worthy community groups."
Melrose residents and Melrose business owners can bring two boxes of paper to be shredded free of charge by PROSHRED®. After the two box limit, a charge of $5.00 per box will be applied and donated to the Melrose Recycling Committee and the Melrose Energy Commission. Old electronics, eyeglasses, dried latex paint and more may be recycled at the event. Some fees may apply.
For more information on the event, what can be recycled, or to volunteer, call Mary Beth Calnan, Melrose Recycling Coordinator, at 781-979-4174. To find out more on recycling in Melrose, visit the Department of Public Works (DPW) webpage at cityofmelrose.org.
