Get Caught Recycling
In honor of America Recycles Day 2021 and 2022, the stadium held a "Get Caught Recycling" event for guests during a Las Vegas Raiders game. Guests who placed aluminum cans or plastic bottles in proper receptacles were rewarded with team and stadium merchandise gift bags. The event was a successful way to promote guest awareness of the stadium’s diversion program, and to educate guests on the importance of landfill diversion and recycling.
For the 2022 America Recycles Day, we held a sorting game for the football fans to decipher what material went to food scrap bin, recycle bin, and trash bin. Some material diversion was a surprise for many as they did not know what could be recycled or sent to landfill.
The Wash Staff Outing
In 2021, Allegiant Stadium staff planted 300 native trees at the Las Vegas Wash, which is a man-made wetland area that carries the city's 150 million gallons-a-day-run-off water to Lake Mead. These trees aid in erosion prevention and habitat restoration.
The Farm Staff Outing
In honor of Earth Day 2022, Allegiant Stadium staff volunteered at a local Las Vegas farm to learn about animal advocacy and the benefits of local farming.
Staff Field trip to the Apex Landfill and Las Vegas Livestock Pig Farm
In the Fall of 2022, Allegiant Stadium staff went on a field trip to tour the Apex landfill and the Las Vegas Livestock pig farm. Being able to see first-hand the tons upon tons of trash that is sent to the landfill was an eye-opening experience for many and further reasoning for our waste diversion efforts. The staff then visited the LVL pig farm, where the stadium’s food scraps go. They were able to see the machine the farm processes the food scraps into livestock feed, and met the pigs that eat the stadium food scraps! It was an inciteful day full of education and first-hand view at the various processes the stadium takes part in.
