GSH Heroes!!!

Heroes are defined as persons who are admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievement or noble qualities. GSH volunteers are heroes because of their selfless act of giving - not just with money and time, but with their entire being.

The volunteers taking part in our e-waste program are the ones that are being highlighted today. The three goals of the e-waste program are to divert electronics and metal from landfills and return materials to the manufacturing sector, support our non-profit GSH society, and offer tax credits for contributions above $250.

In 2021, the total value of domestic purchases of iron and steel scrap (receipts of ferrous scrap by all domestic consumers from brokers, dealers, and other outside sources) and exports was estimated to be $27 billion, nearly double the $14.0 billion purchased in 2020 and 68% more than the $15.8 billion in 2019. Domestic consumption of steel, the leading end use for iron and steel scrap, was estimated to have increased by 18% to 98 million tons in 2021 from 82.9 million tons in 2020. (US. Geological Survey, Mineral Commodity Summaries, January 2022)

GSH express their gratitude to the following volunteers and corporate sponsors: Bobby Perez from Z-Terra, Rene' Mott from Empress Exploration, Kirby Kimball and Oscar Capula from MSI, Patrick Corwin from Oxy, Troy Hawkes from Chevron, and Matt Henson with Weir (who is not pictured). Additionally, MSI provided a field vehicle and trailer - a necessary component for recycling. Many thanks to MSI!

The team was amazing and finished this project in 2 hours recycling 5,900 pounds of material. The e-waste program has handled a total of 19,310 pounds of material with a net to date to the GSH Museum budget of $2748 and growing. These smiling faces are faces of my heroes as they happily gave their time for a great cause. Thank you men. You guys put the fun in fundraising.
