    Several times I have read postings on here about a company that will install a container at your club, then come around and pick up the discarded empty hulls in it.

    Can anyone out there give the name of the company, and contact information if you have it available.

    Also, those of you who have dealt with this company, what is your opinion? Good experience or not?

    I will be away from the computer until tomorrow night, but will be looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance. Jack

    the last info i saw posted said they are those folks who have gotten bags to store the hulls have not been able to get them picked up. I have been waiting for over a month to get some of the bags. at this point, i would suggest you just forget about it for now. The company needs to get there act together. Great idea etc. just are not ready for the problems associated with the project.

    Yes. The National Shooting Complex and San Antonio Gun Club had their shells picked up a couple of weeks ago. Ron

    In North Jersey Gun Club, whatever company we deal with have sent a UPS truck to pick up 10 of those bags. That was the only time . We have not filled another 10 bags yet. I heard from management that the club gets so many points for those bags and we can redeem the points toward recycled products such as benches, tables and scorers seats.

    Personally, I can't see how they can make money on this. Say you pick up 100k gun clubs on a big shoot. That's 2k dollars at 2cts a piece. One guy is not going to do this. It'll be at least two and and maybe three guys to get those picked up and sorted and boxed up for shipping. Once you figure your time and energy to transport you make less than minimum wage. What needs to be done is for these recyclers to hire a lobbyist to get the state government to add hulls to the recycle list. Only then will it be worth it. And if they want to hire a lobbyist they can contact me. Jim

    For any of the folks wondering what we are doing with the hulls we recycle, we are not sorting and reselling them. We actually break them down and use the different materials for a variety of products. If you are interested in participating, please feel free to give us a call at 615-630-4590. We are glad to provide as many bags as needed to store the used hulls. Please take a look at our website www.garrisongreenllc.com . If you have any questions let us know. Andrew
