Scrap Metal Challenge

The 7th Annual Scrap Metal Challenge was a HUGE success! Nearly $10,000 was raised, bringing our total up to nearly $97,000 raised from this event. We could not have done it without our sponsors, or this years winner - Marine Harvest. Thank you!

The 8th annual event will be back next year!

Our Goal

Our purpose is simple: to raise money while fostering a little bit of competition within the business community, and help local residents clean up their own scrap metal for a good cause. Since the challenge has begun, over $97,000 has been raised for the purchase of medical equipment for the hospital. 

How to Participate

Existing ABC Recycling customers can take part by donating scrap metal proceeds to the Hospital Foundation for the month of June. This could include scrap donations for the month, a couple of weeks or a one-time donation! 
 If you are not an existing customer, a bin can be placed at your company’s workplace, or you can drop off directly to ABC Recycling . The company who donates the most in scrap proceeds will win the coveted Scrap Metal Cup for 2016. 
 The public is also invited to join in, dropping off their scrap metal in an ABC Recycling bin located at the Public Works Yard (385 Dogwood St) or directly at ABC Recycling (4318 Terminal Pl) .

Hematology Slide Review System ($47,500)
 - This year the Scrap Metal Challenge is raising money for a Hematology Slide Review system for our Laboratory.
