Challenge

A Major League Baseball park was hosting the annual MLB All-Star Game and had 22,000 pounds of e-waste material, including 20 palettes of television monitors, taking up several hundred square feet of event space needed to properly host the three-day event. The stadium required a service that could collect and divert the waste on short notice and in accordance with their sustainability goals.

RTS Solution

On-Demand E-Waste Recycling

RTS leveraged its on-demand capabilities to quickly respond to the bulk-quantity of e-waste so stadium operations could remain focused on preparing for the event. Due to the large volume of e-waste, special considerations had to be made. RTS assigned a dedicated sustainability consultant to ensure the large volume and dynamic environment of the project would be successfully managed. Through their network of recycling partners, RTS connected with a local provider and, within 48 hours, had a pickup plan in place to meet the aggressive deadline.

Sustainability Services

The ballpark and RTS’s commitment to sustainable waste diversion required a solution that would avoid landfill. RTS worked with stadium operations to evaluate the types of e-waste material and ensure recycling efforts met compliance standards and zero waste goals. Once delivery was confirmed, a Certificate of Recycling was provided as proof that the stadium was EPA compliant.

Data Analysis & Reporting

The RTS technology platform gave the ballpark and their operations staff transparency throughout the entire process, which streamlined the logistics of the collection and reported real-time delivery of the materials to the recycling facility. Waste diversion reports were then generated, showing improved sustainability metrics in accordance with the ballpark’s environmental goals.

Outcomes

E-Waste Recycling Compliance

11.4 tons of e-waste diverted from landfill.

Operational Responsiveness

The dynamics of such a large event demanded a timeline reduction of nearly 30% to complete the project. RTS’s integrated services met the requirements and freed up event space for the All-Star Game festivities.
