Wakefield, Massachusetts (PRWEB) October 18, 2016
The Planet Aid Donation Center opened its doors on June 3, and this event was held to formally welcome the center to the community. Key attendees included staff from the Chamber of Commerce, Thomas Mullen of the Wakefield Town Counsel, and members of local businesses.
"We are very pleased to celebrate our new center in Wakefield,” said Planet Aid Operations Manager Keith Gregory. "It's great for residents to now have a place to bring their recyclables."
The Wakefield Donation Center is located on 349 Water Street. Staff will be on site daily to accept the community’s unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories, toys, books, small appliances and electronics, and other household items. Residents can request at-home pick up for bulk donations by calling 774-217-1787.
"The support from the Chamber of Commerce has been outstanding and we're thrilled to have had them as part of this special day," Gregory said.
