Earth Day: Barrel Recycling at NNS

Published April 26, 2022

Have you ever wondered how the barrels you see around Newport News Shipbuilding are recycled? At NNS’ Material Recycling Facility, they are washed, scraped and separated for various uses. Barrels that are not recyclable are crushed at the facility, and sent to the scrapyard.

Watch a video on MyNNS to see Maynard Brinkley (O46) and Derrick Johnson (O46) explain the process.
