Are you buying a new winter jacket? Do you have holiday lights that no longer work? Did your kids get duplicate toys this year? Did Santa bring you a new cell phone?
If you have items you’d like to toss but aren’t sure what to do with them, a number of collections are taking place in Norwood and items can be dropped off at a number of locations around town.
One collection seeking new items and not used ones is Toys for Tots. New, unwrapped toys are being sought for children in the area. You can drop them off at the lobby of the Norwood Police Station.
If you have coats you no longer need, donations can be made at Salvation Army on Route 1.
Cell phones piling up because you have the newest and best that technology has to offer? Drop off used cells at Verizon in Norwood for the 911 Cell Phone Bank.
Have old holiday lights that no longer work? Maybe you switched colors or swapped old lights for LED ones? Whatever the reason, if you have lights that you're not hanging this year, they can be recycled. Check out the information for Norwood's recycling program here.
