Pittsfield Re-Use Center celebration April 28

   PITTSFIELD – Although Earth Day was observed last Sunday (April 28), the theme for the Pittsfield Re-Use Center is “Earth Day is every day.”
   To mark the first anniversary of the center, there will be a celebration on Saturday, April 28 to mark the opening of the spring and fall schedule. The center, located at the old Veterans of Foreign Wars hall on Peltoma Avenue, will be open every Saturday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
   Residents of all towns can use the Re-Use Center in an effort to promote recycling, reuse and reduction of unwanted items. The following items are accepted when in useable and clean condition:  Small appliances; kitchen/glassware, non-upholstered furniture, home decor/domestics, building/tools, office/craft/supply, yard and garden and general merchandise. 

 New and used clothing should continue to be donated to Pennywise Thrift Shop on Somerset Avenue and electronics equipment needs to be taken to the transfer station for cataloging.
   A raffle will be held on April 28 at 3:30 p.m. at the facility for a 55 gallon rain barrel, a compost unit large enough for a family; and a Wing Digger compost turner.
   Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.  Tickets can be purchased at the Re-Use Center on April 28 prior to 3:30 p.m. or at the town office during regular business hours.
    For more information, contact Recycling Committee member Jane Woodruff at 487-3343, Donnie Chute at the Recycling Center at 487-3361 or Town Manager Kathryn Ruth at 487-3136.
