TEN TONS OF ALUMINUM CANS RECYCLED, FUNDS RAISED THROUGH LOCAL RECYCLING PROGRAM

November 18, 2008, Indianapolis, Indiana – Ten tons of aluminum cans have been recycled through The Aluminum Cans for Education Program, providing over $5,000 to participating central Indiana schools and churches.

The Aluminum Cans for Education Program, an initiative established in 2007 by Indianapolis-based Schaffer Recycling, helps central Indiana schools and churches raise money through the recycling of aluminum cans. The program collects the aluminum cans from teachers, students, and members of the community who participate by depositing cans in special bins placed in their school and church parking lots.

“Community involvement is the backbone of this program. In a time of forced spending cuts in educational budgets, our initiative allows everyone an additional way to help fund educational activities without affecting their wallets,” stated Tony Schaffer, owner of Schaffer Recycling. “This program has a double impact on our community; it not only financially benefits local educational and religious institutions, but teaches our children that they can positively influence the environment through their actions.”

The schools and churches receive from the Aluminum Cans for Education Program a percentage of the gross revenue generated from recycling cans deposited in their bins. There is no cost to the schools or churches to participate in the program, which is operating currently in four central Indiana school districts and at fourteen central Indiana churches.

April showers

I know several people who forgot to bring their rain barrels in for the winter and have subsequently ended up with cracked and useless rain barrels.  Where can they be recycled?

Thanks!
