In accordance with the City of Peoria’s commitment to sustainability, Peoria Sports Complex implemented a recycling program. With home teams from environmentally conscious states, the complex was pleased to adopt green initiatives that many of our visitors already supported.
In addition to large receptacles at both team clubhouses, over 30 containers are available throughout the main stadium and around the complex. Recyclable items include plastics, cardboard, paper, aluminum, steel, tin and glass.
The program is successful with cooperation from the concessionaire to use recyclable products whenever possible and an educational campaign for complex visitors. During Spring Training, PA announcements alert fans where to drop their recyclable items. Easily identified blue recycling containers are found near major concession areas, concourses and gates.
City of Peoria’s Solid Waste division collects the compacted recyclable materials. Four pickups are made during Spring Training with over 12 tons of compacted recyclables processed at that time. The annual total for the complex is over 20 tons.
Peoria Sports Complex is committed to cost effective green practices and environmental stewardship through responsible energy use, waste reduction, recycling and partnerships.
