In the Hutchinson area?
Attention Girl Scouts! GSKH Hutchinson Troops are coordinating the Great American Can Roundup in conjunction with Earth Day. The public is encouraged to bring aluminum cans to Midwest Iron and Metal, 700 S. Main St, in Hutchinson on Saturday, April 20 between 8:00 a.m. and noon to receive cash for the cans.
The roundup helps fight litter and save valuable resources. Girl Scouts who participate will receive a patch. Girls are encouraged to participate as a troop. However, individual Girl Scouts may also participate. Ribbons will be awarded for the troops who bring in the most cans!!
Girl Scouts can also sign up to participate in the Scout Council Challenge at www.cancentral.com/roundup.
After the cans are weighed, you will get a ticket to take to the Midwest Iron office to get payment. The ticket will show how many pounds you collected and the dollar amount. Fill out this form, GS aluminum can round up registration form 2013, and return to Kathy Ireland to receive patches. See Recycling Works Patch image coming soon.
This is a great Earth Day project and a fundraiser for your troop.
