USA: New Recycling Exhibit in Las Vegas

In June this year, Republic Services Inc. and the Mirage Hotel & Casino, have unveiled a recycling exhibit inside the Sustainability Discovery Center at Siegfried & Roy‘s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat.

According to the information, the exhibit is part of an ongoing commitment made by Republic Services, a leading company in U.S. recycling and non-hazardous solid waste, and MGM Resorts International to increase awareness of sustainability throughout Southern Nevada and among roughly 42 million tourists who visit annually. As reported, the Sustainability Discovery Center features diverse interactive displays that engage and educate visitors on consequential topics ranging from wildlife preservation to water conservation, as well as addressing the increasingly serious effects of ocean pollution. Republic‘s new recycling exhibit is said to inform visitors of all ages about the recycling process, and provides practical tips on ways to become a better recycler in everyday life. In December 2015, Republic Services opened its largest and smartest residential recycling facility in North America, which is based in the City of North Las Vegas. It is capable of processing two million pounds of recyclable material per day, or 70 tons per hour. The facility is also home to an interactive Learning Center that offers visitors a “360-degree view of the recycling process in an observation deck that sits above live operations”.
