G&M has been recycling aluminum cans since 1970 and is committed to doing their part to keep our environment clean.


G&M understands the impact the packaging of their products makes on the environment. In 1970 G&M decided to help reduce the environmental fingerprint their product packaging creates and open an aluminum recycling center on site. Since 1996 G&M has recycled over 3 million pounds of aluminum.

The recycling center is open Monday – Friday from 9 AM – 4 PM and Saturdays from 9 AM – 12 PM.

Effective January 12, 2017
$0.26 per pound payout

We deduct 10% for impurities.


July Recycling Promotion

During the month of July, G&M’s recycling center will donate 1¢ per pound of aluminum cans recycled to the Galesburg Adopt-A-Park program, which refurbishes local parks.  Parks that have benefited from the program in the past are – Arlington Park, Colton Park, H.T. Custer, Kiwanis Park, Rogers Park, Bateman Park, Debbie Klapp Park, Peck Park, Swing Park, and Inbinder Park.

G & M has been a participant of the Adopt-A-Park program for the past several years and has been operating its recycling center since 1973.
