Aluminum Can Recycling

Posted on Aug 12 2014 - 2:07pm

Aluminum can recycling (our trailer in the back of the church!)  is an easy way to put money in your scout accounts. Ask friends and neighbors to save some cans for you!  The trailer is half full right now and the going rate is around $.50 per pound.  Here's what to do....
1. Weigh each bag individually.  The clipboard with log, pen and yellow hand weigher is in the scout closet in the church hanging on the wall by the light switch.  Everyone should use the same scale.
2. Record your name and weight of cans legibly.
3. Empty all cans from bags into the trailer.
4. Take your garbage bags home and throw them away. ( a scout is clean!)
5. Return the clipboard to the scout closet.
That's it! Pretty easy!  Don't forget to take advantage of this.  Contact Mrs. Riegert at aluminum_cans@bsatroop347.org if you have any questions.
