NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A shop in Brooklyn is working to keep props from the entertainment industry from ending up in the trash.

WCBS 880′s Alex Silverman reports


From a four-foot disco ball to an antique piano to a light that goes on top of a yellow cab, Film Biz Recycling & Pro Shop is 11,000 square feet of just about everything.

“All of it has come from the entertainment industry in New York City,” Eva Radke told WCBS 880′s Alex Silverman.

Radke worked in the industry for 15 years and says she saw a problem.

“Horror stories about dumpster after dumpster full of antiques,” she said.

So she started Film Biz Recycling, which is a non-profit organization.

“Sixty percent goes to charity and the top-tier comes here,” she said.
