Recycle for Diapers at Roses for Autism
Beautiful blooms like these are part of the fine products grown by Guilford-based Roses for Autism, but on Saturday, June 28, the organization is teaming up with AFA Electronic Recyclers to take in used electronics and metals at its famed greenhouses on the Boston Post Road (across from the Guilford Walmart) during the annual Recycle for Diapers program. The event supports a local group that recycles electronics and metals to raise money for diapers, formula, and other baby needs for families of single parents on the shoreline. Roses for Autism will host the collection of old, non-working electronics, wires, cables, computer-related gear, and metal from 9 a.m. to
2 p.m. on June 28. Non-working lawn mowers and motors of any kind (scooters, generators, saws, vacuums, leaf blowers) as well as lead batteries of any kind and appliances (washer, dryer, humidifier, AC units, stoves, etc.) and bulk metal (chairs, filing cabinets, etc., and also items in copper, iron, aluminum) are all gratefully accepted.
For more information, call AFA at 203-421-4187 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. AFA works with the state of Connecticut for safe and secure disposal of any data devices or memory.
