Electronics Recycling - Nov 16

As many are aware, I do a lot of walking around Franklin and that helps me to find out what is going on. Sometimes I am in the right place at the right time (think train stuck on the Union St. tracks this week). Sometimes, I find something that is filed for future use or more research. I call all this activity  "reporting by walking around."

One such walk found the signs set up around the former Charter School (former St Mary's School) announcing the electronics recycling event scheduled for November 16. This event will also recycle bicycles.

When: Saturday, November 16 from 9 AM to 2 PM
Where: school parking lot at corner of Main and Pleasant Streets

In the News: electronics and appliances recycle day; maybe MA budget next week

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"An electronics and appliances recycle day will be held at the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter School, 201 Main St., Franklin on Saturday, July 27, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

Residents of Franklin and all surrounding towns are welcome to participate."

"It’s only Tuesday and hopes are already fading for a deal this week on the overdue state budget.

Breaking a two-week pattern, the House adjourned Tuesday morning without plans to meet on Wednesday. Since July 1, the budget’s due date, both branches have been holding near-daily sessions while they await a report from the six lawmakers charged in early June with coming up with the final fiscal 2020 spending plan.

A day after he expressed hope for a budget “by the end of this week,” Second Assistant Majority Leader Paul Donato, who presided over Tuesday’s session, pushed out expectations another seven days.

“You know [conferees are] going to work the weekend, so we might as well just let them do their thing, come back, tell us when, and hopefully we can meet formally one day next week and put this budget to bed,” Donato told the News Service. There’s “no sense” in continuing daily sessions when it’s “kind of obvious” there will be no imminent report, he said."

Tri-County Receives Donation from Lutron Technologies

Lighting control manufacturer Lutron Electronics has generously donated $3,000 to the Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School Electrical Wiring Technology vocational program to help energize student learning in the school’s electrical program.

The gift, a Lutron Vive lighting and energy management control, was donated by Joseph Pero of Lutron and Keith MacKay of Yusen Associates of Woburn, Massachusetts and was presented to Cathie Rebelo, Director of Vocational Education at Tri-County, Electrical Instructors, Francis McKeown and Robert Sprague, and Electrical Wiring Technology students.

Lutron’s Vive is a revolutionary, simple and scalable wireless lighting control solution for new and existing buildings. Vive wireless works great as a retrofit application, providing flexible wireless lighting design and installation options. The new Vive Wireless Hub provides Vive Vue software allowing facility managers and building owners the ability to maximize productivity and building performance.

The Electrical Wiring Technology vocational program is reliant on equipment like the Lutron Vive to develop and build projects which advance learning and promote real-world application and experience for students. The plan is to use this equipment in the classroom to control lighting and HVAC systems.

After discovering that the electrical program may not be able to afford to purchase the Lutron equipment on their own, John Narducci, Branch Manager of Electrical Wholesalers of Franklin, stepped in to help by contacting Lutron and asking for a donation of the product. “Electrical Wholesalers have already helped and supported the Tri-County Electrical program by sponsoring school field trips to the Museum of Science in Boston,” said Francis McKeown, Electrical Instructor at Tri-County. “We are so grateful for this generous gift as well.”

The students are excited to work hands-on with the equipment. This gift creates an amazing opportunity for the electrical students. “The Lutron Vive lighting and energy management control is an investment in student success and its impact on student learning will be felt over the coming years,” said Robert Sprague, Tri-County Electrical Instructor.

Electrical Wholesalers is a full service electrical distributor with branches throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire and provide the highest quality service to electrical contractors as well as residential, commercial and industrial. Electrical Wholesalers is owned by US Electrical Services, Inc., the largest distribution company in the country.

Lutron Electronics Co. Inc. (www.lutron.com), headquartered in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania, designs and manufactures lighting controls and automated window treatments for residential and commercial applications. Lutron products save energy and make light bulbs last longer, making them an eco-friendly addition to the home and office.

Tri-County RVTHS, located at 147 Pond Street in Franklin, is a recipient of the High Schools That Work Gold Achievement Award and serves the communities of Franklin, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, North Attleboro, Plainville, Seekonk, Sherborn, Walpole, and Wrentham.

All electronic tolling coming to MA Turnpike in October



"The state Department of Transportation has outlined its plans to demolish existing tollbooths once the state's new All-Electronic Tolling systems go into effect on the Massachusetts Turnpike in October. 
According to Highway Administrator Thomas Tinlin, toll plaza demolitions are set to begin at the same time the new system goes live on Oct. 28. Work crews will section off the center lanes of existing toll plazas, pushing traffic to the left and right as they tear down canopies and fill any underground tunnel systems beneath the structures. 
Initial work is expected to be completed by Nov. 22, after which traffic will flow through the open center as crews tear down the remaining plazas on the sides of each turnpike entrance and exit. Speed limits for the exits will be set at 15 mph. Signs will help guide traffic."
