Mrs. Blossom Kaplitt, of Ocean Parkway, Brooklyn, New York (second from left) explains to Brooklyn housewives, whom she has enlisted in tin can salvage drive, how to prepare collected tin cans for the Department of Sanitation trucks. Since March 15th, she has organized twenty-five large apartment houses in the Borough Park section into units for salvage work. In each house a squad of three women, tenants in the apartment, collect once weekly from every housewife, tin cans accumulated during the previous week. In the cellar, each squad processes the cans, removes labels and bottoms, flattens them and deposits them into ashcans and barrels for pickup by department of sanitation trucks. Today twenty-five tons of empty processed cans have been collected through the efforts of Mrs. Kaplitt and other housewives in the territory across the East River. Left to right: Mrs. T. Cohen, Mrs. B. Kaplitt, Mrs. H. Mars, Mrs. T. Rubins
