Super Bowl Prepares For Super Trash Flow

Date: January 24, 2002

Source: News Room

At the Super Bowl in New Orleans this year, the National Football League has incorporated a series of environmental initiatives that affect nearly every Super Bowl related event. For example, solid waste recycling will be a key component of waste management at the Louisiana Superdome, the New Orleans Arena, and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center -- three facilities that host most of the NFL-sponsored events. Another NFL project, materials donation, matches the needs of local nonprofits with all types of leftover materials or equipment including decorative materials and building materials. Finally, a ``Litter Free'' campaign, tested by the NFL five years ago when Super Bowl was last in New Orleans, will be run again at the NFL Experience Football Theme Park. Volunteers reward kids and adults with NFL temporary tattoos for keeping the area clean. Since 1993, the NFL's Environmental Program has expanded greatly from its initial efforts at solid waste recycling. The program has now developed into a comprehensive campaign to reduce all types of waste.
