On November 24-25, in celebration of Thanksgiving and in assisting the community, Gershow Recycling purchased 50 turkeys that the company distributed to local law enforcement agencies and fire departments. The turkeys were then given out to families in need. Those who received the turkeys included the Fire Department of New York’s (FDNY) Engine 231/Ladder 120 at Watkins Street; FDNY’s Engine 290/Ladder 103 “Pride of Sheffield Avenue”; FDNY’s Engine 332/Ladder 175 at Bradford Street; FDNY’s Rescue Squad 252; the Emergency Service Unit; and the New York Police Department’s 73rd and 75th Precincts.
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) 289-6 188 or visit www.gershow.com.

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.
