Besides recycling, all food waste was to be collected for the Red Lodge Area Food Partnership Council for composting at local farms, but there was no food waste due to schedule changes with the weather. Event staff and volunteers from the local high school’s Green Team handled waste management, recording diversion by weight on a scale provided by the Food Partnership Council and entering into the STOKE waste management tool. Any excess hot dogs from Sego Skis for the apres ski party were to be safely stored, chilled, and donated to the Boys and Girls Club, but that portion of the event was canceled due to weather. Free reusable drinking cups were donated by Mizu for athletes and attendees to use for water during the day and apres ski beverages at night. Sego Skis had recyclable #6 plastic cups just in case for the awards ceremony on the mountain, but they would charge $1/cup and funds would be donated to the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary, but this event was also canceled due to weather. All of these efforts resulted in a 60% waste diversion between the evening mixers and ShredX talks.
