At Upstate Metal Recycling, it’s not secret how much we love anything and everything consisting of recycled materials!  Recently, we came across a segment on 60 Minutes that helped us view recycled products from a different standpoint.  “One man’s trash is another man’s instrument?”

This particular segment introduced us to a less fortunate community in Paraguay. The children in this community have been given the opportunity to play in an orchestra to help prevent them from running the streets, but there’s one catch.  Each instrument is made entirely out of trash found around the area.

Are you intrigued? Check out the video, you’ll be absolutely astonished!

Have you ever made something functional out of recycled materials?


At Upstate Metal Recycling we take great pride in taking your collected scrap metal to help avoid your recyclable waste ending up in a landfill. If you’re interested in recycling your own scrap, bring it to Upstate! We’ll recycle your scrap while giving you the best price in exchange! Upstate Metal Recycling will take your car batteries, steel, aluminum, brass, copper, electric wire, cars, shingles, etc. You can even ‘Like’ them on Facebook for a coupon on your next visit to the yard.
