Pennies for Patriots

Save Your Aluminum Cans for Our Soldiers


The City of St. Peters' Pennies for Patriots program provides a way for our community to recycle aluminum cans and also benefit our servicemen and women in the military. To donate your aluminum cans to Pennies for Patriots, bring them to St. Peters’ Recycle City and place them in the specially marked dumpster under the American flag in the recyclables drop-off area. Another Pennies for Patriots collection container is conveniently located at City Hall outside the Cultural Arts Centre entrance.


Hundreds of military personnel and their families travel through Lambert International Airport every day. The James S. McDonnell USO provides a source of comfort and a full range of services to these travelers. The USO receives no government funding and relies solely on private and corporate donations.


When you donate your aluminum cans in the City of St. Peters' Pennies for Patriots collection containers, the cans are recycled and the value of the cans is donated to the USO of Missouri. Depending on the going rate of aluminum, each can is worth approximately two pennies, thus the name “Pennies for Patriots.”

Recycling cans for Pennies for Patriots is a great service project for Scout or church groups!
