Beverly residents can head over to Beverly High School on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon to recycle old electronics and Styrofoam. There are fees for TVs and certain appliances, but many items are free to recycle, including Styrofoam. Check the event section of www.beverlyma.gov for more details.
In Marblehead, there’s a nature walk at Robinson Farm on Saturday at 9 a.m. The 3.5-acre property is a former dairy farm that is now a conservation area. It’s next to the Village School, with an entrance from the end of Abbot Street. You can also help plant trees and shrubs and learn about the plants in the farm’s butterfly garden. It’s all free.
