Go inside Gershow Recycling — a sprawling 40-acre scrap yard in Long Island, N.Y. In just one day, this family-run business will crush three million pounds of scrap — including as many as 500 cars and 20 city buses — to create a multimillion-dollar mound of steel. This family of scrap connoisseurs has only 10 hours to get the job done.

During the summer of 2010, National Geographic spent several hundred hours at Gershow to produce the hour-long program featuring Gershow's Medford, New York location.

"We are so pleased that National Geographic, known throughout the world as a leader in quality and educational programming, devoted so much time and resources to learn about our business and its importance to the economy. This program is an eye-opener to anyone interested in learning about the scrap metal industry and recycling in general," said Kevin Gershowitz, President, Gershow Recycling.
