Collecting recycled material has always been a steadfast way to earn funds and impact the cleanliness of our local environment. Through our ‘Recycle For Rescues’ campaign, we currently process aluminum cans and ink cartridges on a monthly basis, mainly for much-needed funds.
Beverage cans collections have been a staple fundraising method for us that goes all the way back to the beginning of it all. Our volunteer Randy will take bags of collected cans in mass for recycling and bring back the money collected. Aluminum and other precious metals are traded on a daily price adjusted market. So, we don't always know what the exchange rate is when we go to recycle but over the years the range can be as low at 47 cents to 75 cents per pound.
We should clarify what we can recycle only aluminum beverage cans. NOT tin steel, or other alloy materials like wet cat food or vegetable cans.
Recycle on your own! There is no better way to be a good steward of our planet than collecting recycled material on your own. Recycle your own cans and donate the collected cash.
Bag’em up or not. We can do the rest at the Rescue.
Bring to us at:
14811 State Road 31
Punta Gorda, FL 33982
Have us pick them up. CALL (239) 567-4111
Please understand that we do have a busy plate, and it may take us a while to get to you for a pick-up. For obvious reasons, we can only pick it up within 20 of the facility as it would be cost-effective to expend the fuel to pick it up. Also, we request that you collect at least (4) 55-gallon bags worth before requesting pick-up. We suggest that those further away recycle locally to you and then donate the earnings, as this is the same thing.
