Turn In Old Parts, 1942

From The Chatsworth Times
July 30, 1942

When You Have an Appliance Repaired please Turn in the Old Part

When one of your electrical appliances gets out of order, don't throw away the broken or worn-out part. Turn it in when you have the appliance repaired.

We are required to turn in the old parts before we can get new ones. Therefore we must ask you to supply the old parts to us when you have your appliance repaired. If you call at our office to obtain an appliance part, bring the old part with you. If you bring the appliance with you, or if you have our repairman come to your home, be sure the broken part has not been discarded. These worn out parts contain valuable materials, such as copper, brass, aluminum and steel, which can be salvaged and used for war production and other essential purposes.

Service Extensions Sharply Restricted

The War Production Board has imposed sharp restrictions on extensions or expansions of our electric facilities. If you are planning any changes in your service, please consult our office in advance to find out whether we will be able to serve you. If you are thinking of moving, find out whether your electric range or water heater can be used at the new location. Avoid possible disappointment by getting latest information.
