Continue reading below

Residents can celebrate Earth Day on Saturday when GreenFest 2012 is held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Torigian Community Life Center. Organized by GreenPeabody, the event will feature an electronics recycling collection area, where residents can drop off televisions, computers, and other equipment for a charge of $5 for small items and $10 for larger ones. There also will be free bulk paper shredding between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m., and a display of green products and services offered by regional businesses and organizations. Representatives of renewable energy and conservation groups will be on hand to discuss sustainable practices. Old cellphones will be collected for donation to Safe Haven Shelter, an organization serving battered women. An area will be set up for local schools to exhibit their sustainable projects. For more information, go to www.greenpeabody.org.

Because of incorrect information provided to the Globe, a community briefing item in Sunday’s Globe North about an Earth Day event, organized by GreenPeabody and scheduled for this Saturday, April 28, contained several inaccuracies. The correct information is now included in this version of the story.
