A Composting Success Story

Minnesota Twins Compostable Cold Cups from Eco-Products
  • Target Field is a Major League Baseball stadium in downtown Minneapolis, with 81 home games per year and a capacity of nearly 40,000 seats.
  • When the Twins switched to all compostable products for the 2015 season, their diversion rate for organics increased from 67% to 78%. This kept 30 additional tons of organic material out of the landfill and caused a net reduction of 26 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Food scraps are collected throughout the concourse and suites, in addition to back-of-house food prep areas.
  • Post-game sort minimizes contamination.
  • Republic Services hauls organics to the Hennepin County Brooklyn Park Transfer Station. From there, organics are sent to The Mulch Store and Full Circle Organics compost facilities.
