Woodside plans May 18 recycling fundraiser

Woodside Elementary School is giving community members a chance to support students and the environment May 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its second annual Metal Recycling Fundraiser. The Woodside Environmental Committee is teaming with Cimco Recycling, formally known as Action Recyclers, to let people get rid of their unwanted recyclable items.

The students hope community members will clean out their garages, basements and homes and drop off accepted items in the Woodside parking lot where volunteers will help unload items from vehicles. Last year’s fundraiser brought in $600, and the students are hoping to top that amount. All proceeds go to the Woodside Home and School which provides funding to support students.

Lists of accepted and prohibited items are posted on the district’s website. The school is located at W236 N7465 Woodside Road, Sussex.
