Braintree, Milton, Quincy and Randolph come together in early June for the American Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life. This overnight fundraiser and celebration of life involves a few thousand people at Braintree High School’s track for about 18 hours. We have provided recycling boxes for them the past two years to keep cans and bottles out of the waste stream.
SPREADING THE WORD
The Recycling Task Force has created several displays for the Thayer Public Librarywindow cases in the entrance.
The Farmers Market held an Earth Festival in September 2011
with displays from all four Sustainable Braintree Task Forces. The
Recycle Task Force hosted a children’s Recycling Bingo, gave
out Single Stream information, and more.
At the “Peace, Love, Recycle” Festival at one of the Farmers Markets in 2010, Recycle Task Force members organized activities, games and shared information in the community tent. A free drawing was held for a compost bin donated by Jeff Kunz.
