We’re Still Here — Ready and Waiting for Your Bottles & Cans!

BARS recycling shed volunteers

BARS Super Volunteer Bob Parsons

Thank you for all your donations so far. Please continue save your bottles and cans for us. We appreciate donations large and small.

Sometimes we get the strangest things along with bottles and cans. BARS super volunteer Bob Parsons is modeling a lampshade that came into the recycling shed. Bob is at the shed just about every afternoon until the end of July. Too much of the time he’s all by himself. He gets lonely, and can really use some help. If you can spare even one hour, it will be a big help for Bob and for BARS.

Dick Ossen loading the containerBARS is at the recyclable bottles and cans shed at the Barnstable Transfer Station for the rest of July. Money raised will go towards BARS’ scholarship fund for Cape Cod students. You may also pick up a receipt for tax purposes. BARS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.

BARS still has a number of slots open for volunteers during July. Betty Haviland is in charge of signing up volunteers. Please email Betty with your availability, or call her at (508) 320-5047. Also, bathroom facilities are available for volunteers at the Barnstable Transfer Station this year!
