[GreenYes] Zero Waste Stadiums?

Title: [GreenYes] Zero Waste Stadiums?

Good Morning,

The following link offers more information:

It states,

"The staff separates the cups and other compostables from the trash, and
then sends them to a composting facility.  This keeps hundreds of thousands
of cups a year from going into crowded landfills.  When the cups are
purchased in such large volumes, their cost can be comparable to that of
their plastic counterparts.  And using compostable cups saves money on waste
disposal fees, while helping the environment by reducing the use of
petroleum-based plastic products."

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.
