GM Aiming For Landfill Free

July 15, 2010

A long-term goal at General Motors is to divert increasingly less waste to landfills, instead reusing or recycling leftover pieces and converting the rest to energy to replace fossil fuels.

The first major benchmark goal, announced in 2008, was to have half of all major GM manufacturing plants worldwide be landfill-free by the end of 2010. So far, 65 facilities have completed the transition, which means GM is 92% toward delivering on the 50-percent-in-2010 promise.

Energy-efficient plants are a great place to produce energy-efficient vehicles, which have been high on GM’s list for the past several years. Some of the most popular fuel-efficient vehicles available at Jessup Auto Plaza include the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt (up to 37 mpg) and 2011 Chevrolet Aveo (up to 35 mpg).

Future vehicles like the 2011 Buick Regal (a premium mid-size reaching 30 mpg) and the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze (replacing the Cobalt, expected to get up to 40 mpg), and of course the electric fuel cell 2011 Chevrolet Volt, are even more impressive.

You can find these and other great vehicles at Jessup Auto Plaza, a Coachella Valley GM dealership serving Cathedral City, Indio, Hemet, Banning, Yucaipa, Beaumont, Palm Springs, La Quinta, Palm Desert, and many other nearby communities.
