The Salvation Army of Fond du Lac is partnering with Sadoff Iron & Metal in a scrap metal and aluminum drive starting May 15, and continuing through Sept. 30. The summertime project is coordinated by Brian Kuhnz of 96-1 WTCX and SUNNY 97-7 Radio.

The focus is on the collection of all types of metal - including aluminum, copper, lead, stainless steel and brass. Small and large items are all acceptable - from auto-bodies, cast-iron bathtubs, radiators and even farm equipment to frying pans, Dutch ovens, and copper tubing.

Items can be dropped off at the Sadoff Company location on Arndt Street from Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Additionally, this year The Salvation Army will pick up scrap metal upon request.

"The Salvation Army will be happy to make an appointment to send out a truck and two men to pick up requested larger items such as rain gutters, old grills and large pieces of steel or metal," says Lt. Steve Wilson. "It must be placed at the curb. The men will not enter buildings or dismantle large pieces," he concludes. "This is a great opportunity to do some serious cleaning," says Denise Shaffer, community development coordinator for The Army. "And what's more - it's great for the environment!

Jason Lasky, owner of Sadoff Metal & Iron is delighted to partner with The Salvation Army and Radio Plus. "This kind of drive for metal and iron realizes a true energy savings of up to 75 percent - through recycling by lowering the carbon footprint of communities and encouraging proper disposal of metal and aluminum waste, says Lasky."

Those wishing to donate metal and aluminum are asked to keep aluminum separated from other metals, grouping like-metals with like-metals. Each time someone wishes to donate metal, all they need to do is let the scale operator in the Sadoff office know that the material being donated is for The Salvation Army of Fond du Lac. After the transaction is complete, the value of the scrap sold will go directly to The Salvation Army's account.

Common recyclables include automobiles, aluminum cans, aluminum/steel siding, copper tubing, wire, brass fixtures, door knobs, fixtures, steel railings, fireplace inserts and aluminum boats. For a complete list of what is and is not acceptable, please contact The Salvation Army at 923-8220.

Shaffer concludes, "We anticipate that this project will benefit not only the environment, but individuals in the Fond du Lac community by giving them the opportunity to clear out unwanted metal and benefiting Salvation Army programs."

It is the mission of The Salvation Army to meet human needs in God's name without discrimination. To find out how you can help accomplish that mission through donations of time, service and money, individuals are encouraged to call The Salvation Army at 923-8220.
