WWL and John Deere participate in the event together as a show of our mutual concern for the environment and to demonstrate how our business relationship can support these kinds of efforts.

For the sixth consecutive year, WWL and John Deere participated in the Quad Cities X-Stream Clean-up, organised by Living Lands & Waters, an organisation that patrols North American rivers, cleaning up the tonnes of debris that are dumped into them each year. 

“WWL and John Deere participate in the event together as a show of our mutual concern for the environment and to demonstrate how our business relationship can support these kinds of efforts,” says Inna Getselis, Manager Corporate Affairs, WWL Region Americas. 

The 125 volunteers were also asked to sort the materials into recyclable and non-recyclable piles. In just three hours, 36 tonnes of waste were separated, of which 70 percent was found to be recyclable, while only 11 tonnes went to landfill. 

“It wasn’t the most pleasant thing I’ve ever done but it felt really good to have been a part of keeping that much trash out of a landfill,” says Doug Peterson, WWL’s Corporate Account Manager for John Deere.
