Drop off your Scrap Metal Challenge donations

The Campbell River Hospital Foundation fundraiser is about to get underway

The Campbell River Hospital Foundation’s Scrap Metal Challenge is about to get underway.

For the month of June, people are invited to drop-off any scrap metals they may have lying around the yard.

A community bin is located at the Dogwood Operations Centre, next door to the RCMP building, and at ABC Recycling, located at 4318 Terminal Place.

Items such as lawn mowers and barbecues will not be picked up, as reported in Friday’s Mirror. However, pick-up can be arranged for vehicles.

Local businesses including Finning Canada, AJ Forsythe, Nyrstar Mining, NVI Mining and the City of Campbell River will be participating in the Hospital Foundation’s lastest fundraiser.

All businesses that sign up for the Scrap Metal Challenge will go head-to-head in a race to  donate the most scrap metal.

The winner will be awarded a trophy made from an old kitchen sink.

To get involved contact Stacey Marsh at the Hospital Foundation, (250) 850-2418 or e-mail stacey.marsh@viha.ca
