[GreenYes] Re: Zero Waste Stadiums?


I believe that the bioplastic-for-beer was for PLA cups, which are compostable, not bottles.   You are absolutely right about bioplastic bottles being a big problem, and the national moratorium against the marketing of bioplastic bottles remains in place.

My understanding is that the bioplastic bottles are compostable but not recyclable. Who will take responsibility for composting the bottles?

The Oakland A's moved to bioplastics-for-beer in their work with Stopwaste.Org.  It's not ZW, but it's a start.

The University of Colorado's  Athletic Department is getting serious at meeting the school's carbon neutrality goal and has asked if there are any stadiums that have implemented full-scale zero waste through waste reduction, packaging changes, and trash can removal.  


Any information about stadiums that have set these goals or have operational experience to compare is greatly appreciated.
