The Town of Hamburg’s Department of Youth, Recreation and Senior Services is accepting household scrap metal items at its annual “Scrap-A-Thon,” which begins Monday.
Kitchen and home appliances are among the items that will be accepted at the Hamburg Recreation Center (Nike Base) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, through autumn.
“People have the opportunity to rid their homes of unwanted scrap metal and at the same time, help us to expand programs and services through a fundraiser for the Hamburg Recreation Foundation,” said Recreation Supervisor Tim Jerome.
Donors also may drop off such items as discarded barbecue grills, lamps, string lights, electrical cords, automotive batteries and can openers. The scrap may be dropped off at a dumpster in the rear parking lot, on the right side of the Ice Arena, at the Hamburg Recreation Center, 2982 Lakeview Road.
Items that will not be accepted include trash or garbage, hazardous materials, wood, plastic, furniture or bedding, tires or rubber, television sets, stereos or computers, paint cans, aerosol cans or liquid propane tanks.
The Recreation Foundation was established as an independent 501 c-3 nonprofit organization that raises funds to implement the town’s updated Parks and Recreation Master Plan.
