MISSOURI SAVES $171,000 THROUGH SIGN RECYCLING

Across the United States, regional transportation departments are struggling with an increasing stockpile of damaged highway signs. Rising metal prices only add to the burden. But last year the Missouri State Highway Department saved itself $171,000. The catalyst for that savings was the year-old Sign Reclamation Plant where formerly scrapped road signs are recycled for use along Missouri highways. Missouri was one of the first states to try the reclamation process, which involves straightening, stripping/sanding and resizing sign blanks.
