Statistics Your Kids Will Thank You For

What a load of trash – all diverted from our landfills!

Since 2010 we at Gemaco have been patting ourselves and our ecopartners on the back for a job well done, but when we sat back and looked at the numbers we began to realize how significant the impact of one small team of passionate individuals can do.
