Things began to change one morning in July of 1992. Unknown to FSC, Mid-Michigan Recycling had closed on the first. FSC had customers lined up down the gravel road. The more customers who came, the higher the piles of scrap grew. FSC did not have cranes at the time, so the process was very labor intensive.
By 1998, the road outside the yard was paved. But, getting to that point was tedious! To encourage customers to bring their scrap to the yard while the road work was going on, FSC had weekly drawings of $25 for those brave customers who fought the construction. There was also a monthly drawing for $100 held as well to give back to customers during this period of time.
