Remarkable Recycling Results at the International Surface Event 2015

February 17, 2015

Informa Exhibitions U.S. has announced the results of the 2015 recycling initiative at The International Surface Event (TISE) recently held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Over a three-day period, January 21 to 23, more than 84 exhibitors committed to donating, and an amazing 140,765 lbs. of gently used floor covering, stone and tile products were collected. Mountain Re-Source Center and its subsidiary, Tile Partners for Humanity, along with Informa Exhibitions U.S., led this initiative with joint participation and support from the Freeman Companies, United Services and the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

These sustainability allies collected a total of 571,725 lbs. of commodity materials that would have otherwise been collected as trash, ending up in a landfill. Officials from the Mandalay Bay Convention Center provided a comprehensive post-show report confirming that as a result of the effort, 80% of the total waste generated from the show was recycled. Recycled materials included cardboard, carpet, carpet pads, concrete, metal, aluminum, paper, plastics, wood crates and pallets.
