Angelcat Feline Rescue can and bottle drive

Angelcat Haven Feline Rescue is hosting our semi-annual can and bottle deposit drive on Saturday June 4, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at Desco 36 Bacon Square, Plainville. Drop off any redeemable cans and bottles at this time to help support Angelcat Haven. Unscented clumping litter is also accepted. There will be catnip product sales pop-up at the event as well as a bake sale table with lots of tasty treats.
All cans and plastic bottles must be in a plastic bag and glass bottles should be in the cardboard box they were sold in. Due to social distancing guidelines, the following procedures have been put in place. Please pull the vehicle up to the side of the building at Bacon Square and a volunteer will direct to a designated spot in the large parking lot adjacent to the building. Please follow volunteer instructions for how and where to unload cans and bottles to maintain social distancing.

Pre-counted cans and bottles can be brought to Mansfield Redemption Center (75 Forbes Boulevard) any open day. Please do not drop off any cans at the front of the building. Please check the Facebook page for more details. Volunteers for this event or helping count cans on another day, please e-mail nora@angelcathaven.com.
