Bin customization is a fantastic way to personalize our containers and make them your own. We can easily customize our bins with colors, signage, labels and stamping to match your company’s specific brand.
Stadiums are a great source for recyclables! With all the soda cans/bottles that are consumed within the facility there is no doubt the opportunity for a successful recycling program. Choosing the correct recycling containers for your needs is going to be a major component contributing to the longevity of your program. Be sure to choose containers that are durable, functional and the appropriate capacity for the job at hand. Rotationally molded products are built to last! They will not rust or dent and will be able to handle the day to day abuse that your visitors will hand out. Be sure your containers are appropriately labelled. Many of our recycle bins will allow you to choose the shape and color of your openings – and we will also stamp the opening with your choice of label. Take the guess work out of recycling and aim for a clean sort!
THE SPORT OF SUSTAINABILITY, A COMPETITION FOR CLIMATE CHANGE
Busch Systems has long-standing relationships with many such teams and we offer a variety of stadium recycling and waste containers that will maximize exposure for both environmental choices and team pride as all bins can be customized to showcase team colors and identity.
It’s Game Day! Fire up the BBQ and get ready to tailgate, grab a cold beverage in the stands by third base or look from the nosebleeds to see what celebrities are sitting courtside.
In 2013, it was estimated that over 17 million people attended professional league games and over 48 million attended college matches. That would add up to over 65 million fans consuming and discarding waste…about 20,000 tons of it annually.
Considering it would take 54,000 cubic feet to cover the football field one foot deep in waste and the average cubic foot of garbage weighs 0.01 tons; this means an average of 37 football fields covered in waste (1 ft high) per year.
How to manage all of that waste? Perhaps surprisingly to some, most of the major Leagues and schools are on the forefront of Sustainability initiatives and have realized that their exposure to the masses offers a great way to educate while they entertain. Teams tackle their green efforts with large-scale and complex diversion programs and a variety of other programs to tackle carbon footprint, energy and water consumption and community involvement to promote environmental change.
Organizations such as the non-profit Green Sports Alliance offer additional resources and supports to teams and leagues. Launching nationally in 2011, GSA aims to ‘green the world through sport’ and encourages sports personnel to swap ideas and opportunities to improve sustainability efforts.
Recycling Success at Folsom Field, Boulder, Colorado
In 2008, CU-Boulder\’s Ralphie\’s Green Stampede initiative to move the campus toward a zero-waste football stadium made Colorado University the first major collegiate or professional sports program in the United States to undertake such a sustainability measure.
Since 2008, recyclables and compostables are collected each week at around 25 zero-waste stations inside and around the stadium. Student volunteers monitor the stations and advise patrons of proper materials separation steps. ROTC units conduct recycling and compost removal during stadium cleanup.
From 2008-2010, the Ralphie’s Green Stampede program resulted in the collection of more than 242,000 pounds (109 tons) of recyclables and compostables.
