BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham Barons announced today that the team, in partnership with Waste Management, will introduce a brand new recycling initiative for the 2017 season. There will be 13 different recyclable bins located around Regions Field, with translucent liners to clearly define the areas to dispose of paper, bottles, cans and cardboard.
“We, the Birmingham Barons have always been committed to making Regions Field a ballpark that reflects the values and satisfies the needs of this community, which is why we are implementing a recycling program to make Regions Field more environmentally-friendly in 2017,” Barons General Manager Jonathan Nelson said. “Since our time at Regions Field began, we have received positive feedback on all the amenities along with an expressed desire to start a recycling program. We are excited to introduce this new program in 2017.”
The 13 different bins, which will be branded with the Barons logo, will be located in different areas of Regions Field. The bins are expected to be in place for the home opener on Wednesday, April 12th and the Barons encourage all guests to dispose of their trash and recyclables in the specified and clearly marked containers.
