School in Waverly hosts metal scrap drive for cash

Posted: Updated:
WAVERLY (KWWL) -

St. Paul's Lutheran School in Waverly is hosting its annual scrap metal drive on Saturday, Aug. 9, and Saturday, Aug.16, in the school parking lot from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.

The project will keep scrap from going to the landfill, but it will also turn into cash to support the daily expenses at St. Paul's School.

"We're looking for everything that you can imagine. The only thing we don't want is old television sets and old computer monitors," said organizer Jon Tehven.

Tehven said they make about $100 per ton of scrap metal, and he estimates the school made about $6,000 during the scrap metal drive last year.

People and businesses are encouraged to bring scrap metal, appliances, grills and other metal items to the school parking lot located at the corner of 1st Avenue NW and 1st Street NW in Waverly. 

Tehven said the scrap drive is coordinated with A-Line Iron and Metal out of Waterloo and that all proceeds go directly to the school.
