Vermont’s Scrap Metal Market

Prices for copper and steel are at an all-time high– and the boom in business is also driving an increase in scrap metal thefts. We talk with Chuck Carr, from the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, and we hear from Vermont scrap dealers and local law enforcement. Also, we visit with musician Donald Knaack who creates music using junk materials. And, we stop by a micro-distillery near St. Johnsbury that specializes in maple vodka.
