Each year more than 250,000,000 pounds of solid waste are generated in the USA. Most of this waste, about 65%, makes its way to public and private landfills. Degesch America, Inc. (DAI) is committed to being a corporate steward of the natural resources of our planet and as a result, we have placed additional emphasis our recycling program. Since its inception, the DAI Recycling Program has diverted more than 1,000,000 pounds of waste from landfills. For calendar year 2016, we recycled 30,000 lbs. of paper/cardboard, 60,000 lbs. of aluminum and 105,000 lbs. of steel. We are proud of this effort and will strive to generate even less waste going forward.
