Recycle for ICS


Here is a list of acceptable items from our metal scraper. Please continue to save these broken or unwanted items to help make the recycling event successful. Your efforts will help I.C.S. with many needed items and repairs, while protecting our environment.

If you prefer to drop off your metal items to the recycler before the April recycling drive, you can take them to A METAL SCRAP 9301 S. Baltimore (773) 437-4249  
 

Be sure to tell them it is a donation for ICS and they will give you a purchase order. Please forward copy of purchase order to ICS @ 8739 S. Exchange. Chicago, Il 60617. This helps us maintain accurate records. The recycler will automatically cut ICS a check at the end of each month.

Thank-You
