An on-site


cardboard bailer helped the


Chumash Casino Resort recycle more than


300,000 pounds of cardboard in 2018


CI: Have you had to add any machinery or equipment on the casino side? MF: We didn’t have to but we are doing some upgrades. Initially we had a box baler; five years ago when we started separating all of the waste stream we bought a lifting machine, to lift wet waste into the dumpster or whatever. We are about to get some dehydrators; we will basically be processing the food scraps here on-property. It will become a dried product which will go to the local composter, and will speed up that process. It’s a great way to deal with that. We don’t have a lot of land, if we put all of our food scraps into the dehydrator rather than a 30-yard roll-off unit, that will free up space for other activities. The machine is not cheap, it’s around $200,000, but if


you process all of the weights and labour that goes into it for our property, our ROI is under five years for that. It’s expensive to get rid of waste in California.

CI: Have you spoken to other casinos about the project? MF: When you start talking about waste they view it as a constant, they don’t see it how we do; yes it’s going to be there but if you deal with it differently it’s going to save you money. Nobody really has looked at it from an ROI angle; us facility guys though, that’s how we look at everything. We’re always trying to save money to help the property run.


CI: How do you keep everyone motivated about the effort? MF: Every Monday our human resources department issues a newsletter that tells you what’s going on in the property and the recycling guys have their own corner of this. It lets the team tell the property where we are with our progress, what


“Cigarettes are the most frequently littered item on the planet. Such a monumental problem requires a large-scale solution and together Chumash Casino and TerraCycle have taken on that challenge. By offering their guests a way to responsibly recycle their cigarette butts, the Chumash Casino has taken a dramatic step towards preserving our environment and keeping it clean for future generations.” – Tom Szaky, Founder and CEO of TerraCycle.
