Michigan’s Schupan Recycling, the nation’s largest independent processor of used beverage containers, has once again partnered with the LPGA Volvik Championship to provide recycling and composting of waste materials.

The LPGA Volvik Championshipo will be played May 22 – 28 at Travis Pointe Country Club in Ann Arbor.

“At the 2016 LPGA Volvik Championship, we achieved a 28 percent diversion rate through recycling and compost programs,” said Jessica Loding, Assistant Director of Events for Schupan Recycling. “That translates to 3.54 tons of recycled and composted material, equaling 7,080 pounds of material, diverted from the landfill.”

At the 2016 LPGA Volvik Championship, Schupan Recycling collected:

  • 1,556 lbs of plastic (primarily water bottles)
  • 192 lbs of aluminum cans
  • 3,960 lbs of cardboard
  • 119 lbs of scrap metal
  •  825 lbs of paper
  • 428 lbs of food waste

“We’re thrilled to work with the LPGA and the LPGA Volvik Championship again,” said Loding. “Last year proved the need to expand on-course compost collection while maintaining used beverage container and cardboard recycling.”

The LPGA Volvik Championship’s and Schupan’s sustainability efforts are being recognized. In June, Loding and Tournament Director Keith Karbo will travel to the Green Sports Alliance Annual Summit in Sacramento, California to represent the LPGA in a panel discussion and presentation about sustainability in golf.

“We are honored to be included in the Green Sports Alliance program this year,” said Karbo. “When we created the Volvik Championship, we wanted to create a new standard for best practices. We’re incredibly proud of what the tournament has accomplished and look forward to growing the sustainability program in the years to come.”
