A monster scrap metal collection drive has generated monster donations for the West Otago Health Trust, and it is not over yet.

The scrap metal drive, which started as a small project last year, has gone from strength to strength, with $45,000 raised for a Integrated Family Health Centre and Age Related Residential Care Facility.

Organiser Alan Yarker, of Tapanui, said he was very happy with the support from communities, and he expected they would exceed $50,000 any time now.

The scrap collected so far ranged from a single trampoline right up to three truck-and-trailer loads of scrap from a single property, Mr Yarker said.

Any scrap metal, such as brass, copper, aluminium, steel and batteries was sought.

There are still many country collections to do, and anyone willing to volunteer their time is more than welcome, and can contact him,  Mr Yarker said.
