In 2015, the Lincoln Financial Field, home of Philadelphia Eagles, became 100 percent landfill free thanks to the team’s Green Team’s efforts. And now, the Eagles are doing everything they can to make sure that status sticks.
The Eagles have recently announced that they are partnering with Waste Masters Solutions to install a food waste digester and data analytics platform at Lincoln Financial Field. The digester will be built in collaboration with BioHiTech Global and will help optimize efficiency and properly dispose of food waste during the pre- and post-consumer periods.
“Waste Masters Solutions is a global leader in the environmental industry, providing exceptional care and high-quality service for all of our team’s waste-handling needs,” said Eagles Senior Vice President of Operations Jason Miller in a statement. “As an organization that takes our ecological efforts very seriously, we are constantly evaluating and fine-tuning our sustainability model so that we can continue to reduce our overall impact. Thanks to Waste Masters Solutions, I am fully confident that the implementation of this new bio-digester will help make our waste program more efficient.”
The Eagles also have a waste digester at their practice facility, the NovaCare Complex, which was installed in September 2016. Since its installation, more than 18,100 pounds of pre-consumer food waste have been decomposed and diverted from landfill.
“Actions always speak louder than words,” said Waste Masters Solutions President and CEO Steve Masterson in a statement. “Waste Masters is privileged and honored to partner with such world-class organizations that care so much about our environment.”
