San Francisco Giants Hit Recycling Rates out of the Ballpark!

Go Giants!

AT&T Park saw recycling go up 57 percent from the year before as they divert 1750 tons, or 3.5 million pounds of waste from landfill.

“The Giants are the best in the west, and just might be the best recyclers in all of baseball,” said SF Environment Director Melanie Nutter.

“This level of recycling is incredibly high for a ballpark and may even be the highest in the country for this type of facility. We’re very proud of our team all around.” Recycling rates at AT&T Park even exceed the City’s aggressive goal of 75 percent zero waste by 2010.

To make recycling and composting easy for fans, AT&T Park ensures that its hundred-plus trash cans are accompanied by recycling and composting bins. In addition to blue, green, and black containers for the public, staff set up collection systems in the facility’s kitchens. Centerplate and Bone Appetit concessionaires use compostable and recyclable food service ware throughout the park.
