Salvation Army Partners with Sadoff Iron & Metal Company

The Salvation Army of Fond du Lac is partnering with Sadoff Iron & Metal in a scrap metal and aluminum drive starting May 15 and continuing through Sept. 30. The summertime project is coordinated by Brian Kuhnz of 96-1 WTCX and SUNNY 97-7 radio, and will focus on the collection of all types of metal, including aluminum, copper, lead, stainless steel and brass. Small and large items are all acceptable — from auto-bodies, cast iron bathtubs, radiators and even farm equipment to frying pans, Dutch ovens, and copper tubing. Items may be dropped off at Sadoff on Arndt Street Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Additionally, this year The Salvation Army will pick up scrap metal upon request. “The Salvation Army will be happy to make an appointment to send out a truck and two men to pick up requested larger items such as rain gutters, old grills, and large pieces of steel or metal,” said Lt. Steve Wilson. “It must be placed at the curb. The men will not enter buildings or dismantle large pieces.” Jason Lasky, owner of Sadoff Metal & Iron, said this kind of drive for metal and iron realizes an energy savings of up to 75 percent through recycling by lowering the carbon footprint of communities and encouraging proper disposal of metal and aluminum waste. Those wishing to donate metal and aluminum are asked to keep aluminum separate from other metals, grouping like metals with like metals. Each time someone wishes to donate metal, all they need to do is let the scale operator in the Sadoff office know that the material being donated is for The Salvation Army of Fond du Lac. After the transaction is complete, the value of the scrap sold will go directly to The Salvation Army’s account. Common recyclables include automobiles, aluminum cans, aluminum /steel siding, copper tubing, wire, brass fixtures, door knobs, fixtures, steel railings, fireplace inserts and aluminum boats. For a complete list of what is and is not acceptable, contact Salvation Army at (920) 923-8220.
