Subaru Park, home of Major League Soccer's Philadelphia Union, recycled more than 40,000 pounds or 20.41 tons of cardboard alone in 2019.

Now, Subaru of America and the Philadelphia Union have teamed up to make Subaru Park the first MLS Zero Landfill stadium where no trash is sent to a landfill. With the help of Spectra, Recycle Track Systems, Inc. (RTS), and Covanta Environmental Solutions, the park will divert an estimated 357,480 pounds of waste from local landfills annually, the equivalent of a Philadelphia cheesesteak that's 19 miles high and 50 miles wide.

In this episode of Stef Talks Trash, Subaru of America's Environmental Partnership Manager Denise Coogan and Editorial Director Stefanie Valentic discuss Subaru of America's zero waste efforts in the factory and on the field.
