Remembrance Day is a special opportunity to highlight the extremely important role that recycling played in the success of WWII. Did you know?
Winnipeg Patriotic Salvage Corps collected over one million pounds of scrap metals in a single month!!
In 1942 the government made it illegal to keep more than 500 pounds of steel that wasn’t in use.
Movie theatres gave kids movie tickets in exchange for scrap aluminum?
Recycled bacon fat was used for making explosives?
Unlike the early 1940s, environmental/economic concerns, not the necessities of war, are a driving force in scrap metal recycling today.
At Gas City Metals we are thankful we have the opportunity to operate a recycling business so vital to the economy in a peaceful country like Canada!
