Customized diversionary programs are essential to the success of the entertainment, amusement park, and sports arena/stadium industries. While these industries provide a source of fun and entertainment for thousands of individuals every year, there are various issues that stem from the tons of waste that occur during such events. Although this waste is often disposed of in a proper manner, many times it simply ends up in landfills continuing to overflow the already enormous amounts of waste damaging our environment. This is where our Denali team can come into play, as our diversion programs can make it simple for you to ensure that the waste stemming from your entertainment business does not end up in landfills, and is instead recycled into new products.

Our diversion initiatives have led us to partner with massive industries to help them reduce overall waste. We are proud to be a key component of the annual PGA Waste Management golf tournament and multiple NCAA football stadiums on the East Coast, as well as catering to the National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB). We also work with globally recognizable amusement parks, music festivals, and concert venues, and we are grateful to have been an integral part of handling the food waste from the 2023 Super Bowl in Glendale Arizona.


While we have managed to make huge leaps to divert waste from landfills in the entertainment industry, evident in the Bloomberg and Fast Company articles explaining the impact our company had on the 2023 Superbowl in Arizona, we continue to focus on helping companies create the perfect plans they need to divert their own waste.

In the entertainment industry, waste can add up quickly, leaving you scrambling to find a solution that not only gets rid of the waste but does it in a way that helps our environment thrive. Look no further, as Denali is here to help your company establish the best course of action for waste management and diversion, helping ease some of the difficulties often involved in this process.


As a company within the entertainment industry, you understand the importance of adequate waste solutions to not only maintain a positive image but also to help your local community and the environment succeed. When you partner with Denali, you can rest easy knowing that the tons of waste you produce every year will go towards creating useful products that help other industries thrive.

Here are a few examples of what you are helping us achieve:


Waste diversion is an important part of being a responsible business in the entertainment industry. Not only does it help to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, but it also contributes to a healthier environment by reducing the number of pollutants and landfill gas emissions. Additionally, diverting waste helps to reduce the amount of resources that are used to process and store the waste, reducing the overall environmental impact.

Moreover, it helps to conserve natural resources by using the diverted waste to produce useful products such as compost, animal feed, fertilizers, and bioplastics. These products can be used in a variety of ways, from agricultural production to energy production, helping to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

Finally, waste diversion is an important part of the entertainment industry as it helps to create a positive image for the company. By showing that your company is actively working to reduce waste and help the environment, you are demonstrating your commitment to sustainability, which can be a powerful marketing tool.
