Click here to schedule a pick-up
As a Green Initiative, the Boy Scouts of Troop 6 & Troop 2 Beverly are holding the 6th annual Electronic Equipment Recycling Fundraiser on Saturday March 29, 2013 at the Immanuel Church on 140 Bridge Street from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. We can also pick up electronics from now until March 29th. For a fee, we are accepting both working and non-working electronic equipment. The electronics will be recycled by East Coast Electronics Recycling of Shirley, MA. None of the materials will end up in landfills. Examples of what is being collected are; TV sets, computers, monitors, radios, exercise equipment, microwaves, computer peripherals, cell phones, dry cell batteries, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, stereos, fax machines, scanners, speakers, printers, and miscellaneous electronic components. We can also pick-up recyclable bottles and cans. The funds raised will help the boys pay for Summer camp and camping equipment. Pick-ups can be scheduled by calling Ron Zabilski at 978-922-2012 or Jess Moody at 978-993-0105.

About Troop 2
Since 1915, Troop 2 has provided a challenging program for Beverly boys. Boy Scouting is an action oriented program designed to take place outdoors. Troop 2 has a dedicated Troop Committee that along with the Scoutmaster has organized a very active outdoors program.
The hallmark of Troop 2 is its outdoor program. An outdoor activity, typically a campout, is planned every month of the year. We also attend a weeklong summer camp, the culmination of the scout year and the start of planning for the next year.
The campouts give meaning and use to skills the scouts develop as they advance in rank and learn skills to earn merit badges. Our campouts are in the woods -- usually at local sites and not out of cars. They involve hiking in the site, carrying your gear / food / water and campfire cooking by patrol. These activities build self-reliance and self-confidence along with outdoor skills and know-how.
Boy Scouts is the only youth organization we know of where it's largely run by the boys to enable them to gain responsibility and leadership experience while having fun.
