GSA attended the last week of April to the first act of the campaign "20 years recycling glass" organized by ECOVIDRIO in Seville. The nonprofit organization, celebrates the twentieth anniversary of its system of waste recycling glass containers in Spain, which has managed to double the rate in the last two decades.

En los que GSA ha sido siempre protagonista, por su labor en la recogida de vidrio, especialmente ahora, que lleva a cabo el Servicio de recogida selectiva de envases de vidrio, generados en bares y establecimientos de la capital andaluza.

En el acto, intervino el director general de Ecovidrio, José Manuel Núñez-Lagos, que señaló en su intervención que “la evolución constante durante estas dos décadas de la recogida selectiva de residuos de envases de vidrio a través del contenedor demuestra el compromiso de Andalucía con el desarrollo sostenible y la solvencia del modelo contenedor”. Por ello, continuaba, “en 2018 invertiremos para seguir mejorando la contenerización, promoviendo acciones específicas para el sector Horeca y campañas de movilización ciudadana”.

On the other hand the Minister of Environment and Planning of the Andalusian José Fiscal, stressed the importance of recycling in the fight against climate change. Recalling that "besides being essential to caring for our environment, it is also an economic sector with great weight that is opening up new job opportunities generating green jobs". The counselor has advocated continue working to achieve real transition towards a circular economy.
