Time for spring cleaning! Get rid of old appliances, mattresses, bikes and more to the DPW on Center Street during Easton’s Hazardous Waste Collection Day and the Easton Lions Junk & Recycle Day. Money raised goes to scholarships for Oliver Ames High School & toolships for Southeast Regional Vocational Technical High School. Each year we give out $8,000 in scholarships to our Easton senior scholars. Students should contact their guidance departments for applications to the scholarships.
Since 2009, around Earth Day in April, Henry Narsasian coordinates the Easton Lions Club’s annual “Junk & Recycle Day” with the town’s Department of Public Works. The Lions collect items at the end of the loop during the Town of Easton’s Hazardous Waste Day at DPW on Center Street to collect old items from residents that need to be recycled and disposed of. We would especially like to thank Waste Management who generously donates the use of their dumpsters in our efforts to clean up the environment and to raise money to support our community!
While the town safely collects hazardous waste from residents, the Lions accept all sorts of items for disposal and recycling. Some items that are still usable like old sports equipment can be dropped off for free, while other items may be disposed of for for a small fee from $5-$35. We take items from bikes and rusty toys to large appliances like refrigerators, stoves, washers, and dryers. We also have a truck to accept old electronics like TV’s, computers, monitors and dumpsters to sort out the scrap metals from junk that needs to be hauled away including old water heaters, mattresses and other household items.
This town-wide effort, to reduce/eliminate hazardous waste and materials from homes, has been tremendously successful in many ways. Not only are hazardous wastes and materials disposed of properly, but 100% of the money raised by the Easton Lions (after disposal expenses are paid) is given back for the betterment of Easton. Junk Day not only supports our senior scholars ($8,000), but also helps us give grants to many local youth groups and service organizations. The Easton Lions have raised as much as $13,000.00 in a short four hour period with your help and support.
Over the years we’ve supported Scouting troops, youth sports clubs, school sports, music, and extracurricular clubs, HOPe, Food Pantry, ECAT, Council on Aging, just to name a few. We also support Lions causes that impact the environment, diabetes, hunger, childhood cancer, and vision research like Massachusetts Lions Eye Research Fund (MLERF) and a myriad of other organizations who seek support or donated to eye research.
For a reasonable donation the Lions will come to your home or business and haul all the items away! For pick-up and other information, contact Henry Narsasian at 508-269-7181 in early April before the collection day.
