Trash for Cash

An ongoing program that involves the collection of scrap metal and other items which are converted to cash at a local scrap dealer, or cashed in at The Beer Store. Since 2008 we have raised as much as $3,000 in a year. If you have something that can help us out (see list below), please contact, or, if it is easier, cash it in yourself and send in a cheque. We will send you a tax receipt.

Collected Items:

  • Electronics (tv’s, computers and all peripherals, sound systems and speakers, cell phones, etc)

  • Pop cans and tabs

  • Beer, wine and alcohol containers

  • Copper pipe and wire

  • Batteries (lead acid: car, boat, tractor, etc.)

  • Other: If you have something else that can be converted to cash, then let us know about it.
