Another community service swallowed up by Corporate America
Retail Yard Clerk/Scale Assistant (Former Employee) – Duncan, BC – 31 January 2013
When I started working for Steel Pacific, before they were bought out by Schnitzer, I enjoyed what they stood for; "Keep It In Play". As an avid recycler, I loved the idea of re-selling good "junk", and recycling what was left. Now however, the model has been changed to crush everything and sell it as scrap, and other services like toilet and tire recycling have disappeared. The loss of the "Outdoor Hardware Store" was a bitter pill to chew for regulars of the last 50 years, and now it's just another Corporate metal crusher - hot, stinky, and streamlined.
