On November 24, Jonathan Abrams, Manager, Gershow Recycling, visited Ms. Ruby Schroeder's fifth-grade class at Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School to teach students about recycling.
Mr. Abrams explained to the 25 students how the recycling process works at Gershow's scrap metal facilities and the different types of metals the company recycles. He also said that recycling scrap metal saves time in manufacturing other metal products - as opposed to mining materials needed to make those same products - and preserves natural resources.
In addition to describing what the company does, Mr. Abrams talked about Gershow's involvement in the community by supporting local high school robotics teams, offering scholarships to graduating high school seniors, and donating money to charitable causes.
