The members of Big Run Cub Scouts Pack No. 250 are doing their part to help the environment.

Gruda Metals, owned and operated by Philip Bowser Jr., John Paul Bowser and Kay Bowser, will be supplying a roll-off dumpster to be placed in Big Run resident Timothy Boal's yard.

The scouts are asking fellow residents of not only Big Run but surrounding areas to bring any scrap metal they have, whether its a refrigerator, microwave or other appliances, to the dumpster.

They will even take car parts and bed springs. Once the dumpster is filled, the scouts will take it to Gruda's, and all proceeds will be donated to the Cub Scouts.

"This is a good way to teach the kids how to recycle," said Boal.

The community is encouraged to take part in what is perhaps a good way to clean up the town.

For anyone who wants to take part, you can find the dumpster at the Boal residence at 116 West Main St., Big Run.

If one is in need of someone to assist with hauling something away, feel free to call Boal at 952-7250. He will then set up a time to collect the scrap metal.

Money raised from this project will go to help the Cub Scouts with expenses from camping trips and other activities.
