How to Help?

Thank you for Recycling, Reducing and Reusing - it all helps to protect our Wachusett area

Wachusett Earthday is a non-profit group serving the area since 1992. Most of the workers you see on site are volunteers. Your support as a VOLUNTEER (click here for info on volunteering) or DONOR will help us grow and help to protect our environment.

Financial donations are gratefully accepted. Wachusett Earthday is a registered 501c non-profit organization. Please make your check to "Wachusett Earthday" (sorry, we cannot accept credit cards at this time) and send to Wachusett Earthday, P. O. Box 593, Holden, MA 01520.

Plan Your Trip

Your support as a VISITOR is also critically important. We can function most efficiently if you follow traffic signs, have your ID ready for Check-In, and pack your vehicle so we can assess what is being brought onsite and direct you to the appropriate areas for drop-off. If you have questions on where something should go, please ask a volunteer rather than just abandon the item. Items for ReUse should be functioning, complete and clean, or 'shelf-ready'.

So How Does It Work?

Free Items

Many items are available at no cost to residents of our member towns. Household goods, decor, 0ffice, pet, craft, books, toys and games can be found in the ReUse Building.  Outdoor toys, gardening supplies, sports equipment, baby items and furniture are located in the Center Circle area.  The North 40 may have lawn equipment, metals or wood for projects, appliances and home project renovation supplies available too.

Resale Shop

Selected items are made available for purchase - all proceeds support the operations and work of Wachusett Earthday Inc.  The shop is located in the building, near the entrance.   In addition, sewing machines, some fabrics and related items may be available in the Fabrics area.  Please pay before leaving the shop or Fabric area.

Teacher or Non-profit?

If you are a teacher and find you cannot visit during our regular hours - or if your non-profit needs household items for your clients, please contact us to make arrangements.   We allow 'shopping' for teachers and non-profits during our work hours when have volunteers working on a variety of projects.  You may be able to come on Mondays or Fridays between 10 am and 1 pm, Tuesdays between 5 and 6:30 pm or Wednesdays between 1 and 4 pm.
