Workers with LIFT WC carry out junk and sort different types of metal, salvage, and trash at the former Elks Club building on Webster City’s main street. The nonprofit organization was recently formed, and took possession of the building this week with the hope of having the inside clean enough for people to walk through by Junquefest on Memorial Day weekend.
