“The community gives to us and we’re able to give back to the community,” Ms. Giles said. “The main purpose is stopping this landfill madness.”
In the next few months, Ms. Giles and other depot staff will assess contents of the two-story brick building, which was built in 1917 as a school and more recently has housed the Youngwood borough offices and library.
An agreement will then be drawn up to stipulate materials the television program might take away and to schedule a film date. Other objects with recyclable value will be sold at the Shop Demo Depot store.
Any contents of historic value will remain in the county, Ms. Giles said, and readers can help with that. The borough will recover a time capsule that was buried in the building during the 1999 Youngwood centennial. But there are rumors of a capsule having been buried in 1976 and another possibly in the 1950s. Anyone with information about those or other capsules, including location, may call 724-925-3660.
