Turn Metal Into Food

On Saturday, May 1, from 9:00a.m. to 12:00p.m., the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church of Bridgewater will host a town-wide metal recycling event. The event will be held in conjunction with the Key for Hope Foundation, a local non-profit group whose sole purpose is to give back to the community and improve the lives of those in need. All proceeds from the recycling will be donated to the Bridgewater Food Pantry.

The metal pickup bin will be located in the church parking lot, adjacent to CVS on Plymouth St., just outside Bridgewater center. Volunteers will be on hand to help. Any items that attract a magnet (tools, pipe, refrigerators, air conditioners, file cabinets, fencing, keys, etc.), as well as some that do not (aluminum gutters) can be recycled free of charge. Both residents and non-residents are welcome. The event will be held rain or shine.

The event is sponsored by the church’s Green Sanctuary Committee. Green Sanctuary Churches are committed to creating sustainable lifestyles for their members as individuals and as a faith community.

For further information regarding the recycling event, please contact the committee at 508-697-6848.
