    Waste Reduction and Recycling

    Perhaps the most challenging category of resource management, Telski maintains an average amount of diversion of waste from local landfills (approx 15-20 percent).  The resort continues to focus on improving the implementation and enforcement of the recycling program throughout resort, and has begun to implement a centralized, green purchasing program. Restaurants use recycled or sugar and corn-based paper plates and bowls, and natural corn plastic utensils and cups.  Telski recycled approximately 100 tons per year.


    • Programs in place to recycle glass, plastic, aluminum, cardboard, construction waste, metals, newspaper, electronics and paper products throughout resort.
    • Participation in regional San Miguel Recycling Task Force (5 years).
    • Use of recycled paper products, biodegradable plasticware and cups, and sugar or corn-based paper plates and bowls in all restaurant facilities.
    • Elimination of triplicate purchase orders in Accounting department.
