New Interim Board President announced

On January 20, 2016, the Wachusett Earthday board of directors accepted the resignation of Colleen Abrams.


We thank Colleen Abrams for her nearly 25 years of service to the Wachusett communities and her commitment to protect the Wachusett Watershed. Her tireless efforts have removed hazardous materials through hazardous household product collections and led to the creation of the Wachusett Watershed Regional Recycling Center to promote recycling, reuse and the responsible disposal of goods. Her passion to serve the watershed communities and protect our environment has not gone without notice or appreciation. We wish her well in her future endeavors.

The board members and volunteers of Wachusett Earthday remain steadfast in their commitment to continue educating and expanding regional recycling and reuse for a healthier watershed community. Helen Townsend who has worked within WEI for over 15 years, will serve as President as we move forward. There are no changes in our on-going partnerships with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and each of the seven member towns.

We thank the residents of the Wachusett watershed communities and site partners for their patience during this transition and apologize for the inconvenience of being closed in January. We look forward to serving the increasing numbers of residents visiting the Center.
