“There is no one making bottles in New England"

Via the Franklin network, we get the link to this story on the domino effect of companies closing up operations:

"Inside a huge industrial building in Franklin, there are 120 conveyor belts designed to carry broken glass to three stories of giant machines that crush the glass and sort it, to be sent away and be made into new bottles. 
But those machines aren't running now. 
"I think the plant operated at approximately 80 decibels — glass is banging, machines are running. Yeah it was it was pretty loud here,” said Andrew Crowley of Strategic Materials, which owns the plant. Today the plant almost silent inside. “It's kind of sad, it being so quiet," he said. 
The plant closed last month because it lost its only big customer — a company called Ardagh, which ran a plant just nine miles away in Milford that turned all that glass back into bottles. That closed down in March. 250 people worked there."

Continue reading the article online. You can also listen to the audio segment at the same link

The machines inside the Strategic Materials plant have remained quiet since the facility closed down in June.

FHS Boys Hockey says "Thanks!"

"On behalf of FHS Boys Hockey, sincere thanks to all who donated bottles, cans, cash, and redemption tickets for Stop & Shop and Shaws. All those donations added up to $526.20, and there is a bit more to add to that total as donations are still coming in.

As noted prior to the Bottle/Can Drive, the proceeds from this year's drive will be put towards hurricane relief for those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

Again, many thanks to all who contributed!"
