Next Meeting at Molly's
Monday February 11 4-5:30 pm.
9 Bennett Road
Join our vibrant group of can-do people and green the schools! The Wayland Green Team MEETINGS are usually held every second Monday of the month at 4 pm at the Happy Hollow Library; this month, we're trying something new--tea and cake. Come and see what we're all about, what we are working on and have planned, and share your thoughts with us!
Good to Know
The Environmental Working Group has put together their new Dirty Dozen (and then some) and Clean Fifteen produce & pesticide shopping guide. Check it out here.

Eliminating Plastic Bags

Instead of trashing it, bring it to Grace Congregational Church, 67 Salem End Road, Framingham on Sat. Oct.27 or Sat. Jan 5, 10 am to 3 pm. Labels and food should be removed.
About that Trash!
You know (what should be) the old saying: look at someone's trash and you know everything about them.
May 2012. Success! Our efforts, especially those of Green Teamer Pat Conaway, paid off: Wayland's public spaces and ball fields have adopted new, blue recycling bins next to the existing green trash bins. Read about it in the Patch and the Town Crier.
The Green Team met with the Board of Public Works on Monday, April 30, 2012, to stress the continued need for recycling pickup at our fields and parks. Soon after the issue was resolved and we'll have a recycling program! Read the article in the Patch for more details.
