In 2013 the Electronics & Appliance Recycling Fundraiser was added to the Cabot Fair.   This year we will expand on this recycling for profit initiative with the addition of scrap metal and textile recycling.  There will be 3 recycling trucks located in the Bridges Ave. parking lot behind the school from 10 – 4 pm during the Cabot Fair.  Please begin to gather donations and share the word with friends and neighbors.
