Spring Cleaning May Mean Money in Your Pocket

Bring Old Lawn Furniture, Barbecues and Appliances to Gershow

As the temperature rises, this is the time of year when people perform their "spring cleaning” and get rid of unwanted items lying around the house, garage and outdoors. As area residents perform their springtime rituals, Gershow Recycling says that they should also realize that there may be some money in the scrap metal they are about to throw away.

Many people who are cleaning out their garages and fixing up their homes realize they may have some scrap lying around that can be recycled,” said Gershow President Kevin Gershowitz. "Anyone who is getting rid of items for spring cleaning such as lawn furniture, window screens, barbecues and lawn tools such as rakes and shovels can bring them to Gershow. When they bring their scrap to Gershow, they will not only be helping to preserve the environment, but they will get money for it as well.”

Gershow Recycling urges everyone to bring in their unwanted items to one of their eight Long Island and Brooklyn locations to receive cash for their scrap metal. Gershow takes in all types of metal, including aluminum, brass, copper, steel, cast iron, appliances, cars and vehicles. In keeping with its philosophy of "Conserving the Future by Recycling the Past,” Gershow Recycling purchases scrap metal that would have otherwise wound up in local landfills, and turns them into high-quality scrap products for recycling. The company recycles both ferrous and non-ferrous products.
