Resort’s Recycling Efforts Show Significant Reduction in Landfill Diversion Rate
(SAN DIEGO, CA) - As a result of its aggressive recycling efforts, The Lodge at Torrey Pines achieved significant success in 2012 in its commitment to “go green” in all areas of operation.
According to Jeff Case, Major Account Representative at Waste Management Inc., who oversees the recycling program for The Lodge, the resort generated approximately 35 tons of trash and 4 tons of recycling each month in 2011. Currently, the resort generates less than 10 tons of trash, recycles an average of 13 tons, and composts 10 tons of food each month.
“We are proud and delighted to announce these figures, as they show that our landfill diversion rate has jumped from less than 15% in 2011 to more than 70% in 2012,” said Case “The key to this success is awareness. We educate our entire staff on the importance of our recycling program and encourage them to make it a part of their everyday routine.”
