[ARCHIVED] Senior Center to receive proceeds from scrap metal recycling fundraiser

SENIOR CENTER

Alter Metal Recycling is putting on a fundraiser to benefit the Columbus Senior Center.

Any individual or business can participate by bringing scrap metal for recycling to any Alter location and donating the proceeds to the Columbus Senior Center fundraising account.   

Proceeds from the community’s scrap donations to the account made through April 30th will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Alter. The account will remain available to receive scrap donations even after the matching fund campaign is complete.

The community is invited to participate to not only benefit the Columbus Senior Center but also the environment through recycling. 

Senior Center Manager Patty Laska said she’s appreciative of Alter Metal Recycling, noting the funds raised will help with providing programs, buying prizes and decorations, as well as beautification and general upkeep. 

“I think it’s great they’re doing it,” Laska said. “Anything that will help the Center is a good thing. This will help us with everyday activities.”

Founded in 1898 and celebrating its 125th anniversary, Alter Metal Recycling, a division of Alter Trading Corporation, is a fifth-generation company with metal recycling operations located throughout the Midwest. Alter Metal Recycling, 3440 15th St. East in Columbus, is open to receive ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal every weekday from 8 a.m.-noon and 12:45 p.m.-4:30 p.m.

The Columbus Senior Center, 3111 19th St., aims to be a hub that complements existing services and fosters ongoing community engagement by providing programs and activities that support the independence, health and well-being of adults aged 60 and older.
