Metal recycling program to return for Swampscott’s Jackson Park – Swampscott, MA – The Swampscott Reporter.

Big rusting metal hunk of an old washing machine in your backyard? Or maybe you’ve got an over-the-hill air conditioner lying around just waiting to be tossed out. Perhaps your home renovation project has produced a pile of scrap metal with nowhere to go.

Now it has a home. Just steel yourself and bring it down to Swampscott’s DPW on Paradise Road today or on the last Saturday of the month through October from 9AM to noon. This free recycling event is open to all residents of surrounding towns. Seventy-five percent of the proceeds will fund the new Jackson Park Playground opposite Swampscott High.

So get brassed off and do yourself, the environment, Lynn and Swampscott a favor by canning that eyesore of an old hot water tank in the vacant lot next door. It’s a win-win-win-win.

Don’t copper an attitude if you’re behind the wrecking ball today. Put September 24 or October 29 in your calendar (last Saturdays) and plan to deliver your metallic stash on those days.

While you’re here, you can read Precious Metals (Part 1) for some more aluminating ideas. Don’t miss this golden opportunity.
