Are you stuck with old iron railings from when you remodeled the front steps? Are they still in the garage because you're not sure what to do with them? Now you can give The Salvation Army a call to make an appointment for pick-up of that scrap metal. All you have to do is get it out to the curb.

The "Scrap for a Cause" project is rolling this summer season. It benefits donors who want to get rid of old bikes, iron railings, old pots and pans, nails, lockers, and that bent and wobbly aluminum ladder you don't use anymore. Other items to think about donating include old deck furniture, cabinets, gutters and the aluminum window frames from when you had the windows replaced!

Don't know what to do with that old brass bed? Faucets, fittings, hinges, light fixtures and plumbing parts from when you remodeled the bathroom still hanging around? Call The Salvation Army! Is Johnny's beat up little red wagon from 1980 still in the back of the garage? (Remember it's missing its wheels and won't roll)

Well, pull it out and put Uncle Jack's old beat up tuba in it and call the Salvation Army to pick it up! (No, the tuba is not worth fixing, you checked with the music store, remember?) Got three dead lawnmowers taking up room in the garage? Get rid of 'em!

Continuing through Sept. 30, the summertime project is coordinated by Brian Kuhnz of 96-1 WTCX and SUNNY 97-7 radio, and focuses on the collection of all types of metal. Items can be dropped off at the Sadoff Company location on Arndt Street Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. - or The Salvation Army will pick up scrap metal upon request. "The Salvation Army is 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 dis-mantle large pieces.

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. For a complete list of what is and is not acceptable, contact The Salvation Army at 923-8220.
