  • Description: A Springfield, Virginia, USA, company is scrapping bombed-out tanks, bullet-riddled trucks and other mutilated targets at a US Air Force bombing range near Las Vegas, Nevada. Versar Inc's pilot project at Nellis Air Force Base will test the economic feasibility of collecting and recycling the destroyed targets, spent ordnance and other scrap metal from military bombing ranges. The company expects to recover 50 000 tons of mostly aluminum and steel scrap in the first stage of the project.
