Bring your styrofoam, paper, cardboard and tires to the Public Works Facility on Jan. 5.

A post-holiday recycling event will be held Jan. 5, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Public Works Facility, 124 Orchard St. in Watertown.

This was a godsend! Many thanks! Did I hear this may happen again later in the year?

Glad to hear you could take advantage of the recycling event. I am not sure if there will be another event. They had one last year at this time.

Watertown, you rocked! I can't believe how much EPS Foam you recycled this weekend! Everything that was put into ReFoamIt's trailer will NOT be burned or put into a landfill. Nice start for 2013!
