Halethorpe Troop Participates in Great American Can Roundup

Girl Scouts of Central Maryland took 7th place in this year’s Great American Can Roundup (GACR) Scout/Council Challenge—a nationwide challenge in which Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts from across the U.S. are invited to participate and vie for top recycling awards.  This year 28 troops from 21 states collected aluminum beverage cans between January 15 and April 30 in a competition for prizes, awards and cash.

Girl Scouts of Central Maryland Troop 496, from Halethorpe, collected 209 pounds of cans, for an average of 23.22 pounds per capita.  The competition rankings are based on per capita, using the number of participants in each troop verses the number of cans they were able to collect.

According to the Can Manufacturers Institute (CMI) results, the overall competition collected 28,000 pounds of aluminum cans (961,240 cans).

Congratulations to Troop 496 and all of this year’s winners!
