I am replacing a bathroom fixture.

I am replacing a bathroom fixture.

The box is metal and is connected to ground by a solid alunimum wire.

My new fixture has three wire, white, black & green.

There is no wire to connect the green wire to.

IS it OK to screw connect the green wire to the grounded box?
