To supplement funds for our SUPER MAMMOTH Sale next April, we will be providing an opportunity for people to donate any scrap metal they would like to dispose of (iron, tin, steel, aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steel, etc). Ed Arnold Scrap Processors will assist us in receiving, collecting and sorting the metals and then pay us for its worth.
Where: St. Joseph School parking lot (at 2 Summit St. in Batavia) When: Saturday, Oct. 13 Time: 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
What to bring: Metal of any kind...pipes, poles, gutters, metal shelving, bed rails, bicycle frames, pots and pans, lawn furniture, fencing, wire, tire rims, grills, awnings, file cabinets, swing sets, old appliances, radiators, metal sinks, garbage cans, air conditioners, antennas, screen doors, wrought iron railings, tin cans (labels removed), etc.
Absolutely no wood or glass attached to the metal. We will accept car, truck and boat batteries. We will not accept propane tanks or refrigerators unless the Freon in the fridge has been removed. If you have any questions call Kathy Stefani at 344-2701.
Note: LIMITED pick-ups (within city limits) will be available this day only for those who cannot make the drop-off themselves. General donations for the MAMMOTH other than scrap metal will not be accepted at this time.
