NEW ORLEANS — Members of the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center’s Recycling Facilities Team got together to create an enjoyable training video about how to properly dispose of waste and recyclable materials when inside the Convention Center. Each team member stepped up with either a recyclable or non-recyclable item and then disposed of their item in the proper bin.
This video is one of many parts of the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center’s sustainability initiatives. In 2019 alone, the Convention Center diverted more than 250,000 pounds of material from landfills. Knowing how to properly dispose of recyclable materials will help keep the recycling stream pure and free of contamination, which will lead to easier re-use of items like paper, wood, glass, and more.
