Iron Mountain resident Lucy Shampo recycles metal containers. A recycling drive to benefit 4-H Camp Molinare will be held on Saturday, Oct. 27, in the YMCA parking log. Metal and paper products will be accepted.

Drop-offs will be accepted from 9 a.m. to noon. Pick-ups may be available, but need to be scheduled at least one week ahead of time.

Materials allowed for collection include: all metals; car batteries; refrigerators, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, and freezers for a $10 each freon removal fee; paper products including newspapers, office paper, magazines and books; dry cell batteries (household) recycled by MSU Extension.

Habitat for Humanity Restore will recycle electronic and computer equipment (printers, monitors, hard drives, etc.).

Interested persons can contact the Restore for possible pickup.

All paper products will go to TRICO, and all metals will go to Schneider's Iron & Metal.

Anyone who wants to drop off scrap metal at Schneider's on a different day can still ask that the proceeds go to Camp Molinare.

Coolants will be removed by Bjorn Johnson Mechanical Heating and Refrigeration.

There will be 4-H members, leaders, volunteers and MSU Extension personnel on hand to help that day.

No hazardous waste will be accepted at this site. For disposal of hazardous waste contact GAD at 774-9006.

For more information, contact Lucy Shampo at 774-7683 or the Michigan State University Extension at 774-0363.

The YMCA is located at 800 Crystal Lake Blvd. in Iron Mountain.
