Saanich school seeks scrap metal

Cloverdale Traditional School wants your scrap metal – anything from barbecues and lawn mowers to old car parts

Cloverdale Traditional School wants your scrap metal – anything from barbecues and lawn mowers to old car parts and bent nails – to build a new playground.

The scrap metal will be recycled, with all the money going towards buying new playground equipment.

“The parents and students at CTS are working very hard to raise money to replace two aging wooden/steel playground structures that have been around for over 20 years,” said John Schmuck, president of the Quadra Cedar Hill Community Association.

Donations can be dropped off at Cloverdale’s parking lot (3427 Quadra St.) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 25.

If you’re unable to attend, you can bring your scrap metal to Schnitzer Steel (307 David St.) Monday to Friday between May 15 and June 15, and ask them to donate the proceeds to the Cloverdale Traditional School PAC.

The school is also asking for donations of bottles and cans.

Beverage container returns can be dropped off at the Bottle Depot (3961 Quadra St.), and you can request there that the money be donated to the CTS PAC.
