People will be on hand to help unload items to the recycling truck.
The cost for donating computer monitors, CPUs and laptops is $15. The cost for donating televisions is $20. The cost for donating air conditioners is $15. The cost for donating a stove, washer, dryer and refrigerator is $20. The cost for donating a cell phone is $5. The cost for donating small miscellaneous items is $10.
The cost for donating small appliances such as microwave ovens is $15. The cost for donating garbage disposals, printers, DVD players and destroyed hard drives is $15. The cost for donating APC/UPS and lithium batteries is $10.
The DI teams will once again be holding a flamingo flocking fundraiser, which allow residents to send a flock of pink flamingos to land on an unsuspecting Lynnfield resident’s lawn for the night.
Additionally, the DI teams are having a raffle, with the grand prize being a VIP Boston Red Sox package. The package includes front row Dugout Seats, a tour of Fenway Park, on-field batting practice, free parking across the street from Fenway Park, a scoreboard message and access to the Wheels Up clubhouse.
