La Porte City, IA: Do you have any scrap metal around your home and farm that you want to get rid of? Well St. Paul United Methodist Church will once again hold their Annual Scrap Metal Drive on Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM at 501 Sycamore Street in La Porte City. You can cleanup your place, possibly receive a tax deduction, and recycle that old metal by putting it back to use in our economy. On this date you can bring your scrap metal by the church; or a pickup can be scheduled at your home or farm; or if you have enough scrap metal to fill a dumpster, one can be delivered to your home or farm. If you need to schedule a pickup at your home, or if you need a dumpster delivered, please contact Brian Otten at 319-939-3820. All types of metal will be accepted from an old swing set, BBQ grill, or farm equipment; to car batteries, old water heaters, broken tools, and sheet metal. And you don't even have to remove the Freon from old refrigerators! If it is mostly metal, it will be accepted. Items such as TVs, computer monitors, and microwave ovens will not be accepted. Pastor Mike Gudka commented, "Every year take tons of scrap metal out of our community and put it back to work in our economy. So start gathering up your scrap metal and get ready to clean out your basements, garages, and farms! Let's clean up our community and you might even get a tax deduction for your donation." This is an ongoing annual event offered free to everyone and every business in the community.
