Scouts collecting electronics

Boy Scout Troop 87 and Cub Scout Pack 113 are hosting their annual electronics recycling fund-raiser from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 12 at Perry Park. Old television sets and computer monitors are dangerous and present an environmental hazard when not disposed of properly. For a nominal fee, the Scouts will unload vehicles and take unwanted household electronics away for safe disposal and recycling. The Scouts also will be offering their help in picking up items for those who are unable to drop them off. Pickups will be May 11 after 4 p.m. For questions, contact Pattie Garzoneat, or 508-523-0900 or Marie Mandarano at or 978-373-3160.
