Today's Lockport Union Sun and Journal mentioned the following about Gasport's newest addition...

Niagara Metals is up and running as of Wednesday on Route 31 between Middleport and Gasport, while a community group waits for a state Supreme Court ruling to check the Niagara Falls-based plant.

It noted this about operations...

The “feeder plant” at 8729 Rochester Road is fully operational, Niagara Metals President Todd Levin said. The transfer station is managed by Dawn Laubacker and designed to take scrap from the Royalton area and transfer it to the main plant in Niagara Falls on Packard Road.

It is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and on Saturday mornings and accepts ferrous and nonferrous metals, excluding automobiles.

The article also went on at length about the unfortunate lawsuit put against the company and the town, courtesy of some local residents. Read the story online at:
