Troy: Hey, Troy, Champion Plumbing out at Eagan. Just to show we’re not all plumbing, right? We have these old file cabinets that have been sitting upstairs for years. As you know, everything’s digital now. So, we’re getting rid of them.

We put them up on Facebook, for free, for a couple of weeks, and nothing happened. So, we’ve got a cardboard compactor, and we thought, “What the heck? Let’s see what happens.” And here’s what happens.

So, we’ll recycle the metal, all good there. But, just a little fun in the back of the shop today. And then we’ll go in with our water heaters that we recycle, all the metals and stuff. So, I will show you what it’s like to compact a file cabinet. All right, here we go. There’s two of them in there. Is it loud?

Chris: No, it’s not loud.


Troy: I can introduce everyone to our new operations manager, Chris. He’s been with us for a few months on the Champion side. Like nothing.


Chris: Sounds good, yeah. Piece of cake.


Troy: Like nothing. Shall we throw those ones back in on top too, and see if we can squish them even more? Sweet. We’ll get a couple more pictures, but I don’t want to bore you with too much more. So here, we’re not plumbing, we’re compacting filing cabinets.

Here goes another one. This one’s a little taller, so we thought we’d give it a shot. (silence) Well, it’s fun. Oh, it didn’t even hit capacity, really.


Chris: We can take all the cardboard out and put these in tall.


Troy: The tall ones in?


Chris: Yeah. Oh, man. Going straight down. I think we should do that.


Troy: That’s the way to do it. The tall way. Shrunk it down to a piece of teeny piece of metal. (silence)
