Recycling Rally and Sustainability Fair – Saturday August 3

BCC is hosting and co-sponsoring a Recycling Rally and Sustainability Fair on Saturday, August 3 from 9am to 1pm!

The event is being run and organized by Guardian Life and offers all sorts of green activities and family fun!  Here are some of the highlights:

  • Recycle just about anything! (Please pre-register) – Large appliances, electronics, furniture, clothing, and more (note: CRT TVs/monitors require a small fee in advance)
  • A Sustainability Fair in Paterson featuring face painting, a photo booth, worm casting, a bee keeper, and many other informational tables!
  • Grab a bite to eat at Biggins Diggins food truck or get a fruit smoothie made by The Spot!
  • A free shuttle (and return) to the Pittsfield Farmers Market!
  • Live 95.9 will be there broadcasting live from the gym!

Recycling details (City of Pittsfield website) – Please pre-register by July 26 by listing the items you are bringing on the form at the bottom of the linked site.  This page also shows what is accepted and explains how to prepay for CRT TVs/monitors.

I am also looking for any folks interested in volunteering to help direct people/traffic, assist people with their recycling items, and just generally show our guests how amazingly welcoming the BCC community can be!  If you are available for part or all of that day and want to help please send me an email.

Thank you and I hope to see many of you there!
