Orange Village Fire Department collects aluminum beverage cans for recycling.
All profits benefit the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Foundation.
In 1986 the Northern Ohio Fire Fighters, the Northeast Fire Chief’s Association, along with MetroHealthMedicalCenter of Cleveland started the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Foundation (ACBC) to help children who suffer severe burn injuries.
If you would like to separate these cans from your other recyclables, please pack them in blue plastic bags and drop them off at the Fire Station at the Village Hall or deposit them in the recycle bins located on the south entrance to Village Hall by the Fire Station.
