of House (BOH) Source Separation Plans
is implementing the following source separation efforts at the Venues.
Additional source separation efforts are being finalized.
- No glass food and/or beverage containers are allowed in any garbage
cans on the venue unless specifically coordinated with WRCS before the
Games. If it is absolutely required that glass containers are disposed
of at the venue, the function responsible for the glass should arrange
for separate collection of the glass with WRCS or return the glass to
Office Paper - Paper will be separated into cardboard recycling bins
placed in high paper generation areas (generally Back of House operational
areas). Paper will be placed into cardboard/paper-dedicated roll-off
bins on the Venue and hauled to Green Valley. Shredding of confidential
documents may be required in some operational areas.
- SLOC staff will flatten cardboard and place it outside the operational
area for WRCS pick up or take it to a cardboard/paper-dedicated roll-off
bin. WRCS will haul the cardboard in pick up truck to cardboard/paper-dedicated
roll-off bins on the venue which will be hauled to Green Valley. Some
Venues have cardboard balers that will be used.
Grease - Separate collection is being arranged from the Main Media Center
and Olympic Village.
