    CBB: Recycling Opportunity at NewBridge

    NewBridge on the Charles has an Environmental Stewardship Committee, which works with residents and administration to make NewBridge aware of the many ways that all can make positive changes to help our environment. Toward this goal, independent living residents at NewBridge have been collecting redeemable bottles and cans for several months. These have been redeemed by students, and the money collected was donated to a charity.

    We are looking for people who are interested in collecting the bottles and cans at NewBridge and bringing them either to a redemption center or to a local grocery store.  The money collected can be used to support a school, a scout troop, a charity, or a cause of your choice.

    The bottles and cans are put into a plastic lined barrel near the Concierge desk at NewBridge. When this is full, the plastic bag is removed and replaced with a new one. The barrel fills about every 3-4 weeks.

    If you are interested in helping the environment and supporting a worthy cause, please contact Lynda Bussgang at LyndaBussgang@hsl.harvard.edu
