Sustainable Community

To continue the organization’s ongoing efforts of reducing their impact on the environment, the Philadelphia Eagles have announced that they will team up with environmental partner, Waste Masters Solutions, on the installation of a food waste digester and data analytics platform at Lincoln Financial Field. The eco-friendly mechanism is designed to optimize efficiency and properly dispose of food waste during the pre- and post-consumer periods.

Waste Masters Solutions will work closely with BioHiTech Global – a green technology company that develops and deploys innovative and disruptive waste management technologies – on the design, construction and operation of the stadium’s Eco-Safe Digester® and analytics platform.

“Waste Masters Solutions is a global leader in the environmental industry, providing exceptional care and high-quality service for all of our team’s waste-handling needs,” said Jason Miller, Eagles senior vice president of operations. “As an organization that takes our ecological efforts very seriously, we are constantly evaluating and fine-tuning our sustainability model so that we can continue to reduce our overall impact. Thanks to Waste Masters Solutions, I am fully confident that the implementation of this new bio-digester will help make our waste program more efficient.”

In September 2016, a waste digester was installed at the team’s practice facility, the NovaCare Complex, to help decompose pre-consumer food waste. Since the installation, more than 9 tons (18,100 pounds) of food waste has been decomposed and, thus, diverted from landfills.

“Actions always speak louder than words,” said Steve Masterson, Waste Masters Solutions President & CEO. “Waste Masters is privileged and honored to partner with such world-class organizations that care so much about our environment.”

Based on the core belief that the path to sustainability is a journey and not a destination, Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie spearheaded the team’s Go Green program in 2003 with the opening of Lincoln Financial Field. What started out with blue recycling bins under each employee’s desk has turned into a comprehensive environmental program that features the elements of green energy production, recycling and composting, energy and water conservation, reforestation and sustainability partnerships. The organization recycles more than 850 tons of material each year and through their energy-from-waste program, virtually 100 percent of waste is diverted from landfills.
