Recycling may not be the buzzword it used to be, but it is still a huge part of helping the environment and making the earth a safer, cleaner place. For GSI and AGCO, recycling is an important project. Recycle Fest 2022 occurred recently which was a partnership between the communities of Assumption and Moweaqua. The recycling event took place Friday, June 10th, on AGCO’s GSI parking lot.
Multiple collected items were included such as electronics, paper, plastic bottles, pallets of glass bottles, fluorescent bulbs, aluminum cans, cardboard, and many types of batteries. The organization’s main goal is to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste with recycling value that would ordinarily end up in a landfill.
The program diverts waste streams away from landfills, which helps to prevent pollution while also providing gains in the economy and access to vital raw materials. AGCO employees were on hand to receive and sort the items.
GSI is a brand within AGCO Grain and Protein and AGCO is a global leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of ag machinery and precision ag technology.
