Diversion Designers' mission is to divert the maximum amount of waste from the landfill all around Colorado through implementation of sustainable waste systems as well as waste tracking and reporting. Here are some recaps of the work we have accomplished thus far!
Steamboat Springs Winter Sport's Club
We ran the waste diversion operation at the Annual Jumpin' and Jammin' Summer Ski Jump Competition in Steamboat Springs. This 2-woman team was able to accomplish a 73% diversion rate while incorporating an education outreach program with the attendees.
Country Jam Music Festival
Diversion Designers operated the Sorting Station for the 17,000-person country music festival in Grand Junction, CO with a 9-person team of rock-star waste warriors. We sorted through every single bag of recycling to maximize waste diversion and minimize contamination to the recycling stream.
Amber led the waste diversion operation at FIBark boating and music festival in Salida, CO. Achieving 6,036 pounds of waste diversion at a 10,000-person festival with only 2 volunteers!
Emily led the sorting station operation at Sonic Bloom, mobilizing over 15 volunteers to help sort through as many bags of trash as possible to maximize recycling! A total of 7 waste streams were recycled/reused totalling 38,886 pounds of waste diverted!
