Before we could crush 50,000 metal 35mm film canisters into cubes, the metal yard requested that the canisters be free of all plastic. This meant individually removing the end caps off each canister and pulling out the plastic spool. The reason behind removing the plastic spool was to create a stronger bind during the crushing process.
We were lucky enough to have a few nights where friends came to help in this process. All up it took roughly a week to complete.
