What's so special about Methow Recycles Metal Drives?

5 things to know about Methow Recycles metal drives –

We think it great that there are now many choices for community members to get their scrap metal, large and small, recycled. It means that this valuable resource is being utilized and our properties are getting cleaned up. We want to make the choice offered by Methow Recycles clear:

  1. Methow Recycles has been hosting metal drives every few years since 1998 as a fundraiser for Methow Recycles. The sale of all metal collected supports our programs for whole valley.

  2. This year we will be facilitating the harvest of good, reusable materials and making them available to the public for sale before recycling them.

  3. We protect vehicle and property owners as well as Methow Recycles by meticulously following the laws regarding titles and paperwork for vehicles.

  4. We keep the valley clean by keeping the metal moving and by preventing soil contamination from vehicle fluids.

  5. It can be a lot of work for property owners and our volunteers, but over the last 16 years, our observation is that most have found it to be fun and satisfying.
