Go GREEN with QRS Recycling at the Kentucky Derby Festivals

Go GREEN with QRS Recycling!

QRS will be servicing and assisting in management of green efforts at multiple Derby Festival events. QRS offers single-stream recycling, a solution which allows all the accepted materials to go into the same container. No sorting is required! This method will allow for a user-friendly, efficient process at all Derby Festival events.

The Kentucky Derby Festival’s Go Green! initiative steps up this year through a partnership with QRS Recycling. With the help of QRS, Derby Festival plans to significantly increase the collection of recyclable products. Expect to see Green Teams at many Derby Festival events including Thunder Over Louisville, Kroger’s Fest-a-Ville, U.S. Bank Great Balloon Glow, Marathon/miniMarathon, and the Republic Bank Pegasus(r) Parade. The Derby Festival’s Go Green! program, which is sponsored by LG&E, includes composting of inedible food waste; donation of edible food; use of compostable products; yellow grease recycling and on-site recycling.

GREEN TEAMS will be present at the following Kentucky Derby Events:
