Circus Circus Reno Starts Single Stream Recycling
Circus Circus Reno is now recycling in one bin—including glass!
We will be using a new drop box for our new Single Stream Recycling program that we will be implementing property-wide. In this one box, employees will place plastic, aluminum, paper and glass—in one bin. We will still be recycling cardboard, which will be collected separately.
For 2013, our recycling numbers were huge for the property and we are excited to see what 2014 brings. Recycle America provided our recycling effort numbers for 2013:
• 209,309 pounds of cardboard.
• 59,455 pounds of white paper.
• 12,230 pounds of plastic bottles and shrink wrap.
• 550 pounds of alkaline batteries.
• 1,950 pounds of E-waste
• 2,900 pounds of phone books.
• 10,000 plus pounds of scrap metals, steel, aluminum and copper wire.
In addition to the new Single Stream Recycling, we are continuing to replace our casino lighting to more efficient LED lights. This year already, we have converted the majority of our restaurants and retail shop lighting to this more efficient MR16LED light which uses less electricity. Along with all of this, we have recently installed our two electric car charging stations in the North Parking Garage. These stations are being used by our customers almost every day. We are already planning a compost program for our restaurant kitchens.
With our new Green Team, we plan on rolling out more conservation plans. We are always open to ideas from our employees and community on how we as a company can help the environment. For more information on our Sustainability efforts, please visit our webpage. Use #CircusIsGreen for suggestions.
