Universal Scrap


Historical Art Gallery

About 25 years ago, Universal Scrap Metals began collecting government-sponsored World War II posters that promoted scrap collection. Today, our collection, numbering more than 50 posters, has transformed our corporate offices into an historical art gallery.

In conjunction with the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries in Washington, D.C. a composite “collector’s poster” was created from a sampling of our collection. To receive a complimentary poster depicting this historical record of the scrap industries’ wartime contributions, contact David Lasky to arrange for a site visit of your plant and an assessment of your company’s scrap metal recovery system. Or, if you would like to visit our headquarters and view the complete collection, please call to arrange an appointment.
