Extremely Green! We realize that every choice we make during the months of planning for the Waste Management Phoenix Open (WMPO) affects our claim to the title of “The Greenest Show on Grass." So in 2012, we launched the Zero Waste Challenge to control event materials and educate attendees on the impact they can have on the course and at home. Since then, there have been no trash bins on course, only recycle and compost bins.
We will continue to utilize three Zero Waste Stations at the tournament. The repurposed 40-cubic yard dumpsters transformed into eye-catching kiosks where fans can play interactive games and drop off waste items with volunteers who sort the materials.
WM along with the Thunderbirds, the PGA TOUR, TPC Scottsdale and all of the tournament stakeholders will continue to be trailblazers on this journey towards increased sustainability. Along the way, we are thrilled to share best practices so that other sporting events and venues can do their part to green the games.
