Rubicon Global announced that it successfully diverted nearly 12 tons of waste destined for landfills from State Farm Arena during recent festivities in Atlanta.

This waste was generated as a result of five events being held at the State Farm Arena leading up to and in support of the big game.

The team at State Farm Arena planned, unpacked and built temporary construction of booths and meeting spaces, as well as delivery of goods and services that were used onsite.

More than 50,000 press and invited guests passed through the turnstiles at State Farm Arena during the week of January 28.

“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.”

“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 a statement.

In April 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.
