The Edgemont Tribune; Feb. 7, 1945; Magnificient response has been received in boosting our collection of waste paper - quantities now being received have tripled over former collections.
The Edgemont Tribune; Feb. 14, 1945; The town of Provo had made donation of several truckloads of waste paper and tin cans this week to this Depot's Salvage Section. We sincerely thank Provo for its contribution to the war effort.
The Boy Scouts are helping in the collection of waste paper and tins and each week they will call at each home to remind the residents of the community to have their paper and tin ready at specified times for the pick-up trucks. It is hoped that the people of this Area will cooperate with the boys 100%. Neither the Troop nor the boys will receive a cent of pay for their effort to get waste paper and tin collected, but are doing it entirely as a patriotic duty for the war effort. This will continue until our Government tells us that they do not need any more.
The Edgemont Tribune; Feb. 28, 1945; Properly prepared tin cans are greatly needed in the winning of this war. Because of the shortage of this vital war material every man woman and child in this community is urged to do his utmost in salvaging tin.
The Edgemont Tribune; March 7, 1945; Wanted - - Constructive suggestions on how to put over our tin can salvage drive successfully. So far we have failed miserably.
The Edgemont Tribune; March 14, 1945; Photographs representing the 2nd carload of scrap metal shipped from the Depot are on display at the Community Building.
Donation of approximately one ton of processed tin cans was made to the Fall River County Tin Can Drive this month.
The accumulation of waste paper has tripled within the past month, due largely to the fact that the Boy Scouts have launched a renewed campaign for the collection of waste paper and tin cans. This program is in effect throughout the United States.
The Edgemont Tribune; March 21, 1945; Even though we have made a good showing at this Depot within the past several months in our collection of waste paper, we CAN and MUST do better.
The Edgemont Tribune; March 28, 1945; The Japanese have captured roughly 70% of the world's production of tin, out of which the United States received about 90% of its supply. In view of this, and the fact there is no substitute for tin, do you wonder why today every tin can is so important? Just a little more effort on our part in salvaging tin cans will assure our country the tin so badly needed to win the war.
