Hoover Fergusons Recycle the Gulf is an environmental program designed to help protect and preserve our environment through reduced and recycled waste generated offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. The Enviro-Pak line of waste compactor products makes it easy for recyclables to be collected, sorted and compacted on the rig. All recyclables are donated to its Louisiana-based partner, Arc of Acadiana, an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of those with developmental disabilities.
