When ordering from suppliers, reduced packaging is requested, and it must be of a type than can be recycled or reused. Our waste removal company, South Tahoe Refuse, brings all trash to their material recovery facility where 37% of the total trash is recycled. This helps to catch any recyclable materials that were added to the trash that may have been overlooked by staff or guests.
