Get Rid of Styrofoam and Donate to a Food Pantry, Sunday

The recycling event at the Department of Public Works facility also benefits the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry in Watertown.

Styrofoam comes from all sorts of places, blocks holding electronics in their box, peanuts used in shipping, coffee cups and to-go containers from restaurants.

These items cannot be recycled in the normal curbside pickup, but Sunday the Watertown Citizens for Environmental Safety will host an event to allow residents to get rid of their styrofoam.

The event is free, but organizers encourage attendees to bring canned or other non-perishable items to donate to the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry at St. Patrick's Church in Watertown.

Come to the Department of Public Works facility, at 124 Orchard St., from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday to dispose of your styrofoam.

Items must have the No. 6 recycling symbol and must be clean and dry. The event is sponsored by WCES, the Watertown Department of Public Works and the Watertown Police Department.
