Dec. 23 — An Owego, N.Y.-based metal recycling company is being featured in a National Geographic channel show that tries to determine the price of the Eiffel Tower.
Adam Weitsman, president of Upstate Shredding — Ben Weitsman & Son, is part of the show “Pricing the Priceless: Eiffel Tower,” the scrap company said. The show, which will air at 9 a.m. (EST) on Dec. 24, and 4 p.m. (EST) Dec. 28, will feature a segment on the tower’s scrap value.
Portions of the program were shot on location at the company’s site in Owego.
“The tower is an important symbol of French culture, romance and man’s ingenuity. But when you get right down to it, it’s made of iron, and iron has value,” Weitsman said. “That is one of our areas of expertise — the pricing and value of iron — and I was grateful to be able to contribute my knowledge to National Geographic.”
Upstate Shredding — Ben Weitsman & Son has shredding facilities in Owego and Rochester, N.Y., and eight scrap yards in New York and Pennsylvania.
