To the Editor,

About the only thing that didnít go up in June were scrap metal prices.† Among the overall market decline, commodity prices may have taken the largest hit of all: Steel fell 5 percent, aluminum was down 8.5 percent, and copper declined 9 percent. †

Nevertheless, the citizens of Waxahachie still came out strong to support local community recycling. Our citizens recycled 170,000 pounds of steel and 14,500 pounds of aluminum cans. †

As summer swings into full effect and we start firing up the grill many people decide to invest in a new one.† Stainless steel grills were coming through our doors daily and amounted to 6,000 pounds of recycled grills last month. Ceiling fan motors also were a recycling hit with 4,500 pounds of motors being recycled. †

Frankís Urban Collection has also seen an increasing amount of computer towers and peripherals (keyboards, mouse, accessories) being recycled instead of being thrown away.† As people learn about our services and what they can recycle, the community of Waxahachie is responsibly handling the waste they collect. †

Keep it up, Waxahachie.† Your recycling efforts make a difference. †
