NFL announces zero waste plan for Super Bowl
The NFL, in partnership with PepsiCo, Aramark, U.S. Bank Stadium and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, announced Rush2Recycle, a game plan to recover more than 90 percent-more than 40 tons-of stadium waste at Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4.
On game day, every chef, custodian and fan will be part of the team working to recover at least 90 percent of stadium waste by recycling bottles and cans; composting organic materials like food waste and serviceware; and repurposing items like discarded handbags, signage and construction materials through local community organizations.
“We’re excited to be working with the NFL and PepsiCo to officially kickoff our zero waste initiative, an operational program that will leave a lasting impact on our facility for years to come.” This project brought all key stakeholders in the Minneapolis community together with one goal in mind-a dramatic reduction in waste leading up to and following Super Bowl LII. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, the stadium’s operator SMG and Aramark have worked diligently to create and implement a robust set of waste initiatives aimed at reducing the overall amount of landfill waste in the area.
