Spencer James of Chuckey!

    When a customer recycled $20 worth of recyclable in October, they received a ticket for a drawing.  On the morning of November 4, the drawing was held live on WGRV.  The drawn winner was Spenser James of Chuckey.

    Upon arrival to pick up $
1000 door prize, Spenser told us the reaction to the news that he won.  He said, "his sister had heard it on the radio."  His first reaction was, "Wow... because I wasn't expecting to win."  Spenser told us that he always sold scrap at Greeneville Iron & Metals, Inc.  because of the "convenient location and how you do things."  Spenser's plan for the money is "to fix the home and Christmas".:  View additional Pictures

    :.On June 24, 2009, President Obama signed the Consumer Assistance to Recycle and Save Act of 2009 which has been known as the 'Cash for Clunkers' program.  This program allowed a person to receive up to $4500 for their vehicle if it qualified.  The program concluded on Monday, August 24.
    With the conclusion on August 24, dealers await payment from the government and then ship their vehicles to scrap yards.  According to the law, the entire vehicle must be shredded or crushed with only minor parts to be salvaged before the crushing.
    As an approved CARS collection site, Greeneville Iron and Metals, Inc. has been receiving clunkers from surrounding dealers.  The pile of clunkers has quickly mounted up.  These vehicles await the car flattener.  The vehicle goes in one end normal and comes out the other crushed down flat.  Upon being flattened the cars are shipped out as scrap metal.  Once shipped out the cars go through a process and the metal eventually ends up in a state that can be reused.:
