If you are going to design a new form education in the scrap industry you better have a strong foundation with a ton of real world experience. My buddy Brad Rudover, one of the owners of Detroit Scrap has just that, along with a cool new idea on how to engage and teach more individuals about the nuances of the scrap metal recycling industry and the products we handle every day. Listen to Brad and I discuss our personal history, how far we have come as an industry, and why we love SCRAP so much!
