On May 9, Ray Colon, Manager, Gershow Recycling, visited Mrs. Tara Greene's honors Life Sciences class at Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School, where they learned about recycling. As part of an extra-credit assignment, students watched an episode of National Geographic Television's "Break It Down: New York Scrap Yard" featuring Gershow Recycling then answered questions on what they saw on the show. They were asked what the company does, how many pounds of metal are scheduled for breakdown, what are the employees' main functions, what the equipment does, what are done to the vehicles before they are shredded and what types of scrap metal are the most valuable. Students received baseball hats and folders, courtesy of Gershow.
