Allianz Field + Minnesota United FC

BizRecycling and its partners began working with MNUFC in 2017 to ensure their new home in Saint Paul would be built with sustainability in mind. We worked together to make recycling, organics recycling, and traditional waste easy to deal with for fans. With high-quality recycling stations, color-coded signage, a commitment to using BPI-certified compostable products for food vendors, and more, the Loons and Allianz Field diverts approximately 268,000 pounds of waste annually, avoiding over 325,000 pounds of CO2 emissions.

Additionally, the Loons hired a group of passionate individuals to comprise their green team who travel throughout the stadium on game days engaging fans with their recycling program and rewarding those who do a good job and recycle and compost appropriately.

CHS Field + The St. Paul Saints

The St. Paul Saints are a professional baseball team, and a member of the North Division of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball. The Saints have put environmental responsibility at the forefront of their organization, including hiring a Sustainability Coordinator whose sole focus is on maintaining and improving the recycling and energy efficiency programs at CHS Stadium.

BizRecycling originally provided technical consultation to the St. Paul Saints in 2014 during the design phase of CHS Field and the first season of play at the stadium in 2015. This included an analysis of the new ballpark design plans, working with the organization to identify how to implement recycling and organics diversion programs, and how to set up vendor contracts for those services. The Saints received a BizRecycling Grant that paid for all of the facility’s back-of-house compost and recycling containers, as well as an initial supply of compostable bags. On opening day, the facility boasted state-of-the-art waste reduction, recycling, and organics recycling initiatives. In their first season, the Saints achieved close to a 50% recycling rate and are working toward a 90% recycling rate. With up to 7,000 fans attending every game, the educational reach of the Saints’ programs will go far beyond the walls of CHS Field, making waste reduction, recycling, and composting fun for the whole family.
