The construction & demolition team at Rubicon Global partnered with Waste Eliminator, a Metro-Atlanta roll off container service provider, developed a sustainability plan, and set up a series of specified containers to divert specific materials during the tear-down process and implement a recycling stream solution.
“We are thrilled with the ongoing partnership we have with State Farm Arena, as well as with our hauling partner Waste Eliminator, both of whom have great sustainability philosophies that align with our mission to end waste.”
In all, 15 pick-ups of 30-yard open top containers by Rubicon and Waste Eliminator resulted in 2.07 tons of metal, 6.26 tons of wood, and 3.46 tons of paper and OCC diverted to recycling streams.
“State Farm Arena is always conscious of our waste streams being part of a sustainability model in every possible way,” said Geoff Stiles, Vice President of Facilities and Building Operations for State Farm Arena.
In April of 2018, Rubicon Global also worked with the Arena during a construction and demolition phase, with the removal of 12,500 seats from the arena as part of a refurbishment project.
