On Tuesday, December 12, families from across Patchogue celebrated the lighting of the first candle on the town’s new Menorah on the first day of Chanukah. The new Chanukah Menorah was donated by Gershow Recycling in response to a request from the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce. After 20 years, the previous Menorah needed replacing and the Chamber asked local businesses to help. Gershow, which has a location in Medford, purchased it on behalf of the community. The Menorah, which stands nine feet tall and features energy-efficient LED lights, stands proudly near the Capital One Plaza on East Main Street in Patchogue Village. 

Gershow has nine locations in Brooklyn, New Hyde Park, Valley Stream, Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, Bay Shore, Medford and Riverhead. For more information, call (631) 289-6188 or visit



Started in 1964 by Sam Gershowitz, Gershow Recycling began as a two man operation with a tractor and trailer, a boom truck and the first portable car flattener. Now with the second generation carrying on the legacy, Gershow generates over 750 jobs, contributing millions of dollars to the local economy, while helping to preserve Long Island’s environment. Gershow Recycling takes aluminum, brass, copper, steel, cast iron, appliances, cars and vehicles. In keeping with its philosophy of “Conserving the Future by Recycling the Past,” Gershow Recycling purchases scrap metal that would have otherwise wound up in local landfills, and turns them into high-quality scrap products for recycling. The company produces both ferrous and non-ferrous products.
