The city of Pasadena teamed up with SCS Engineers and Rose Bowl officials to recycle over 8 tons of waste from the 2006 college football national championship game this past January.
SCS was responsible to design, implement and manage the recycling program for materials at the stadium and during the activities including the game and surrounding activities, tents and events. The program diverted over seven tons of single-serve beverage containers, 0.4 tones of mixed recyclables and 0.7 tones of cardboard. The Los Angeles Conservation Corps (LACC), a non-profit organization, estimated that 70 percent of the bottles and cans generated throughout the pre-game activities and stadium were collected for recycling.
The city and LACC dispersed bins throughout the event area, Coca-Cola donated recycling bins for the stadium concourse and Allen Co., of St. Baldwin Park, Calif., provided cardboard recycling services. The LACC handed out recycling bags to tailgaters and collected and diverted the beverage containers from the special events and stadium seating area.
