Wanted: Shovelers, metal & trees; Five things to know in Burrillville this week


Feed the animals

Liberty Farm in Harrisville is now accepting donations of live Christmas trees to feed their cows, goats, and alpacas.

Trees must not have been chemically treated, and must be free of tinsel and other decorations. Residents can drop off trees next to the gate at the bottom of the farm’s driveway at 60 Ironmine Road.

Junk metal wanted

Do you have an old refrigerator, oven, microwave, air conditioner or even vehicle that you’re looking to throw out? The Burrillville Lions Club will pick it up. The club will take any old appliances or metal items regardless of condition, and even rusty, rotted items such as bed frames. The metal is recycled and funds garnered go to the club to support ongoing charities.

To schedule pickup, contact Lion Dennis Laboissonniere at DFLABBY@Yahoo.com.
