Saturday is the last chance this year to donate metal for recyling.
The Jackson Park Playground Project Committe will be accepting any unwanted metal for recycling with proceeds benefiting the effort to build a community recreation area and playground at lower Jackson Park on Essex Street next to Swampscott High School.
The JP volunteers have manged to collect an amazing 101 TONS of metal since the first collection in 2009. Not only does metal recycling benefit the playground project financially, but 100 tons of metal recycled also has a huge impact on the environment.
The collection will be held at the former Kids Cove at Phillips Park in the rear parking lot on Saturday, October 29th from 8-noon.
This collection is open and FREE to all communities and any type of metal will be accepted. PLEASE no televisions or computer monitors. Cash donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible.
