Increase Landfill Diversion Rate

A few words about Landfill Diversion

Reducing Landfill Waste

The Moda Center (formally the Rose Garden arena), home of the Portland Trail Blazers basketball team, doubled their landfill diversion rate within 48 months of implementing the GreenDrop Recycling station. Improvement of the diversion rate was immediate.

The GreenDrop station is an integrated, multi-bin, 88-gallon system that is carefully designed to dramatically improve landfill diversion rates compared to other receptacle types.

The system’s consistent order of bins enables guests to pre-sort waste faster and with increased accuracy. This consistent user experience leads to increased guest participation.

The innovative design limits flat surface area which ensures the GreenDrop station remains a recycling device rather than taken out of service by guests using the station as a temporary dining table.

All the preceding factors will increase the diversion rate of waste from landfill to compost/recycle.
