Cash for trash


Putting your old vehicle out to pasture just got a little easier.

Students can put their old cars out of their misery and help out a charity at the same time, said Erin Humphrey, administrator of the vehicle donation program for AADCO, a vehicle disposal service.

Humphrey said students can direct the money to a registered charity of their choice and the charity issues a tax receipt for $75 to $125, depending on the state of the car.

Since the program started four years ago, it has raised over $450,000 for charities, Humphrey added.

To have your heap of metal hauled away, call 1-800-463-5681.

Exchanging information


Students interested in taking part in Western's international exchange program are invited to attend a meeting tonight at 5 p.m. in Room 142 of University College.

"It's an opportunity for students to come and hear about the program," said Jessica Braden, exchange officer with the centre for new students.

According to Braden, the presentation will cover everything from how students can apply for the program to what types of exchanges are available. There will also be some exchange students in attendance, to answer questions.

Although the program is geared towards third and fourth-year students, Braden said the meeting is open to anyone interested in gaining information.
