Excel Industries partnered with Kansas Metals to dispose of or recycle products such as wood pallets, metal baskets, batteries, cardboard, office paper and scrap metal.
The paint department of Excel, manufacturer of Hustler Turf Equipment and BigDog Mowers, is striving to reuse as much wash water as possible while fabrication sends out scrap steel for recycling. Purchasing is challenging suppliers to use returnable racks and to limit the amount of material that won’t recycle.
In 2011, Excel recycled almost half a million pounds of cardboard and more than 3.5 million pounds of steel.
Founded in 1960 and based in Hesston, Kansas, Excel Industries is a manufacturer of premium commercial and residential lawn care equipment under the Hustler Turf Equipment and BigDog Mowers brands.
