The Air Force has made $1 million dollars by selling 15 tons of scrap metal, Federal Times reports.

The scrap metal has been saved up for more than 15 years at Thule Air Base, Greenland. President Obama gave an order for agencies to recycle at least half of their non hazardous waste by 2015. Agencies can keep their earnings from their recycling efforts.
