Just in time for fall clean up – gather your unwanted items!

by Lynn Viesti Berube

The Milford Bank will host a Green Fair at its Main Office Campus on the Milford Green located at 33 Broad Street in Milford. The event will be held on Saturday, November 14th from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.

Two trucks will be on hand that day. One will accept unwanted office supplies such as outdated computer equipment and office furniture. AFA Electronic Recyclers of Branford, CT will responsibly dispose of all items they collect.

The other truck will securely shred unwanted documents on site. The vendor providing this service is Infoshred of East Windsor, CT. (There is a limit of three medium sized moving boxes.)

These services will be provided at no charge to customers of The Milford Bank. Others are asked to make a donation of $5 per box. Funds collected will be donated to a local charity to fund a green initiative in 2016.

The Literacy Center of Milford will be collecting children’s books at the event and the First United Church Youth Group will collect deposit bottles and cans.

There will also be children’s crafts, information about home energy efficiency, tips for reducing paper consumption, arts and crafts vendors and more! Admission will be free.

Susan Shields, Milford Bank President & CEO says of the event, “The Milford Bank continues to support the residents of Milford and Stratford through community involvement, donations to many local charitable organizations, special events and financial education. The Bank is proud to partner with this year’s vendors. The goal of providing these services to members of our community is to assist with the responsible disposal of unneeded documentation and outdated electronics while educating the public on easy energy conservation.”

A list of accepted items can be obtained on the AFA Recycling website: www.afaelectronicrecyclers.com. Have a piece of electronics to recycle that is not on the list? Please contact AFA Recycling directly at (203) 421-4187.
