Please join us in a friendly competition between the Town of Agawam and  Town of West Springfield, recycling unwanted textiles!

This friendly competition is aimed at reducing the amount of textiles entering the waste stream and supporting Hartsprings Foundation’s mission of financially supporting Big Brothers and Big Sisters.  Hartsprings will be sponsoring the competition, awarding the community that collects the most pounds of cloth (textile) during the month of May.  The winning town will receive a $500 donation from Hartsprings for either the Agawam School Systems Department of Special Services or West Springfield High’s Terrier Closet Program.  Let's go Agawam!!!!
