News Type:  Daily Student Parent Staff Alumni Date:  Tuesday, September 15, 2020

The Eagles varsity Co-Op hockey team - West Catholic, Grand Rapids Christian, Coopersville and Cedar Springs - is once again sponsoring a scrap metal drive on Friday, October 2, and Saturday, October 3. There will be a drop-off container in the parking lot of the Eagle Ice Center which is located behind the scoreboard of Eagle Stadium (2600 Village Dr. SE). Players will be there to assist you 3-7 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday. 

The team will thankfully accept anything with metal on it, in it or around it. Appliances, golf clubs, bicycles, grills, fans, cell phones, laptops, computer towers, car parts, car batteries, marine batteries, stainless steel, metal ladders, metal tools, air conditioners, gutters, coat hangers, vacuum cleaners, etc. They will be collecting returnable cans and bottles, too! TVs, computer monitors or anything with fuel/chemicals still left in it will not be accepted. 

If you have items too large to haul yourself, please contact Rachel VanSchepen (rvanschepen@grcs.org), to schedule a time for the team to pick-up your item. PLEASE NOTE: The item(s) for pick-up need to be placed OUTSIDE of your home either in the garage or the yard. You may also bring your scrap metal to any of the PADNOS locations to drop off. The hockey team's account is GRA3360.
