Scrap Metal Pickup Due to the low scrap metal prices and the lower number of scouts helping him out, Paul has pretty much shut down the operation. This Boy Scout Troop collects metal to raise funds for their scouting activities. This is a very worthy group and an excellent way to get rid of scrap metals. They a non-profit 501(c)3 and can give a tax receipt for your donation. Please call Paul at (480) 206-7477 to arrange a pick up. He's an early riser, so do not call after 8pm or so in the evening.
