Keys... in drawers, we all have them, many keys sit in drawers for years until you can't remember what the key is from so why not recycle them? Redtail Ridge Elementary students in Savage are collecting keys for recycling as a fund raiser for their school. The students are currently trick or treating for keys asking for old, discarded and unused keys for recycling.
Here a couple of things to keep in mind:
- Approximately 16 keys weigh 1 pound
- 1 pound of yellow brass recycled currently yields $1.95
- K & K Metal Recycling will return 100% of the profit to Redtail Ridge
- 700 pounds of keys would yield $1,365 for the school
You can drop off your keys at Redtail Ridge, 15200 Hampshire in Savage (near PLHS) through November 11th or at the District Services Center in Prior Lake, 4540 Tower Street (behind the Post Office) through November 9th.
