Photo: Can he do it? Recycling aluminum in Iqaluit

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Long-time Iqaluit entrepreneur Bryan Hellwig stands beside his collection of cans beside his Northern Collectables store in Iqaluit Aug. 28. Roughly one million crushed cans will be stored in containers bound for Montreal by sealift. While the commodity price for aluminum is currently low, Hellwig, who's been in the recycling business for 20 years now, hopes it will rebound before the end of the shipping season in October. Today, aluminum is trading at  69 cents US per pound, which is down from 90 cents per pound last year and $1.20 US per pound in 2011. (PHOTO BY STEVE DUCHARME)
