Basketball Fans Recycle
The Republic Services Salt Lake City hauling division is promoting environmental sustainability to thousands of people by sponsoring the Utah Jazz Green Team. The Green Team reaches out to basketball fans with topics such as recycling, water conservation, electricity reduction and clean air. Republic Services’ sponsorship of the Green Team exposes fans to the importance of recycling at their homes and businesses through giveaways and programs about reducing their environmental footprint.
Republic Services is actively involved with similar green teams nationwide, including the Houston Rockets and Kansas City Royals. During a “Green Stretch” at all Royals’ baseball games, an announcer encourages fans to use Republic Services’ recycling bins located throughout the stadium for recyclables.
