Four Seasons Las Vegas was Clean the World’s first non-gaming hotel partner in Nevada to join the hospitality recycling program. Since 2010 Four Seasons Las Vegas has embraced the concept of amenities recycling at its lavish Las Vegas Strip hotel, and the rewards of the partnership may be witnessed in the satisfaction it brings to those who work there.
“Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is honored to partner with Clean the World,” says Mark Hellrung, general manager. “Since joining the program in 2010, our hotel has collected 4,609 lbs. of soap and more than 7,426 lbs. of bottled amenities. This not only reduces waste, but it helps prevent illness and disease in the U.S. and in impoverished nations worldwide.”
Clean the World celebrates the vital and vibrant participation from 22 hotel partners in Nevada with the Feb. 29 grand opening of the Las Vegas Recycling Operations Center. The recycling facility, located in Las Vegas, serves all hotel partners in the Western region, including the Las Vegas strip hotels, a number of hotels and resorts in other parts of Nevada, and the target-rich hospitality environment along the Pacific coastline.
The opening of Clean the World’s Las Vegas ROC gives greater visibility to soap recycling efforts in the Western region, and greater opportunity for individual properties to shine within the program. And the commitment to sustainability is having a positive impact on guests.
