A Successful July for BARS at the Barnstable Recycling Shed

BARS volunteers celebrating last day at the shed for 2021

Thank you everyone who volunteered at the recycling shack and all those who donated their returnable bottles and cans. Shown here are some photos of those who showed up the last day to help clean the shack; empty the container of bags of cans and boxes of bottles into the truck to be returned to the manufacturers; and finally, to celebrate the end of a job well done. We are so grateful to have had this opportunity again.

BARS volunteers manned the shack from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm seven days a week for the whole month of July, 2021. We received a total of 151,624 bottles and cans that earned $7,585.20 for the BARS Scholarship Fund. Hopefully, we will be back next summer.
