Gershow Recycling Helps Sayville High School SADD Teach Students about the Dangers of Drunk and Distracted Driving

Sayville High School teachers Rick Caskey (far left) and Susan Censoplano (second from left), advisers for the school’s SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Chapter, pose with student representatives in front of a wrecked car, provided by Gershow Recycling to remind the community of the dangers of driving while distracted or drunk.

In support of the local community, Gershow Recycling donated the use of a vehicle to Sayville High School’s SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) chapter to help fellow students raise awareness on safe driving.

The junk car was displayed in front of the school during graduation week, June 20-24, 2016, to remind students of the consequences of driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, as well as the danger of driving while distracted by texting or talking on cell phones. The Sayville SADD chapter thanked Gershow for its assistance and its use of the vehicle.

Gershow has nine locations in Brooklyn, New Hyde Park, Valley Stream, Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, Bay Shore, Medford and Riverhead. For more information, call (631) 289-6188 or visit

Started in 1964 by Sam Gershowitz, Gershow Recycling began as a two-man operation with a tractor and trailer, a boom truck and the first portable car flattener. Now with the second generation carrying on the legacy, Gershow generates over 750 jobs, contributing millions of dollars to the local economy, while helping to preserve Long Island’s environment. Gershow Recycling takes 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 produces both ferrous and non-ferrous products.
