Charles City Rotary continues collecting metal in scrap drive
The Charles City Rotary Club continues its metal scrap drive this week, with more than 15 tons already collected as of the weekend.
Persons with metal scrap are asked to drop it off at Denny’s Recycling, 1100 13th Ave., in the Rotary Club bin. Persons with large items, business materials or farm clean-ups can make an appointment to have Rotary Club members pick them up by calling 641-228-1753.
Chris Garden, the club’s service project committee chairman who organized the drive, said Monday that a lot of appliances had been picked up.
“It’s good to get those out of the garages and basements,” he said.
Garden said a dozen loads of scrap had been picked up by the weekend, and several more were collected Monday.
The scrap drive continues through Saturday, Oct. 12. Money raised through the drive will go to support Rotary Club community projects.
