The Ironbound Catholic Academy, located in Newark, recently completed their 2014 Eight Grade Fund Raiser. From Sept. 2013 through May 2014, students were engaged in a recycling program in which they placed used Aluminum Beverage Cans (“UBC’s”) in designated boxes in each classroom. The cans were collected daily for recycling. The Academy approached H&C Metals in August 2013 to inquire as to whether H&C would be interested in partnering with the school by accepting & buying the scrap cans. H&C agreed to provide the Academy with weight tickets as students periodically delivered cans, maintain on-going records of received cans and pay the Academy a price equal to the price H&C would realize from selling directly to a large aluminum Mill for recycling. The Catholic Academy 8th graders collected 500 lbs. of cans!
H&C is proud to participate in local community service efforts like this which benefit a school, its students and the environment.
