'Support your local community, support your local yard’ - 18 March 2019

n support of BIR’s Global Recycling Day, BMRA is launching a ‘Support your local community, support your local yard’ campaign.
In order to promote the message about metals recycling and the benefits to the environment, we would like member yards to identify a school or schools in their community to help raise funds for via a scrap metal collection. You and the school can choose to promote the collection to the local community as well. The metal collected would then be weighed in and the proceeds donated to the school. You might even want to match the money raised by way of a charitable donation to the school.
The metal collection does not have to take place on the day and, for safety reasons, we would suggest over a weekend. You may also stipulate the material you are willing to accept.
The BMRA will supply a PowerPoint presentation and quiz for the schools to deliver on Global Recycling Day itself, as well as supporting material like posters for you and the school to print out to promote your collection. There will be a lot of Social Media activity leading up to and on the day, so you can get involved by sharing pictures. 
Please register your interest by emailing Kate. Further information and materials will follow in the coming weeks.
