Phoenix, Arizona – January 27, 2015 – Seattle is contributing more than a great football team to the Super Bowl coming up this weekend in Arizona. Bainbridge-based Green Mountain Technologies (GMT) has been contracted by the City of Phoenix to provide composting for the food waste and compostable service ware for the pre-Super Bowl events. The goal is to make these festivities zero waste events, where everything is either composted or recycled.
Says GMT CEO Michael Bryan-Brown, “Seattle has been setting the standard for food waste composting at events such as the Mariners’ and Seahawks’ games. The City of Phoenix is interested in emulating Seattle’s event composting success. By promoting composting for these Super Bowl festivities, the City of Phoenix is setting the standard for all Super Bowls to come.”
This program is part of a larger effort to bring Seattle-style curbside collection of food and yard waste to Phoenix. GMT is working with the City of Phoenix to design a state-of-the-art composting facility for processing all of the City’s food waste and yard waste. Say Bryan-Brown, “We’re bringing that same Seahawks determination to help the City of Phoenix establish a top-notch composting program.”
