Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Community Impact Activities Keystone Summer Mountain Views Sunset at Lakeside Village

Keystone Resort promotes high standards of environmental stewardship. Efforts are continuously made to educate both employees and guests to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Keystone operates a comprehensive recycling program that provides service to employees and guests at all Keystone owned or managed operations. This includes condominiums, restaurants, offices, and businesses operating both on and off the mountain. Keystone has its own curbside recycling truck, and in 2010, recycled over 1,000 tons of material. In addition to resort operations, Keystone provides recycling services to the Snake River Fire Station and to two local non-profit organizations, the Keystone Center and the Keystone Science School. Keystone’s recycling of over 1,000 tons in 2010 was equivalent to saving:

  • Over 6,600 trees
  • 120 households worth of energy
  • 1,240 tons of Carbon Dioxide and 54 tons of Methane (greenhouse gasses)

In 2002, Keystone began a composting pilot project at the Ranch Restaurant, diverting approximately 500 pounds of kitchen prep waste per week from the landfill. Since that time the composting program at Keystone has continued to flourish. The local landfill began accepting compostable waste in 2009. With this new venue the composting efforts at Keystone Resort grew from 49 tons of compostable waste being diverted from the landfill in 2009 to almost 94 tons in 2010. In 2011 we collected over 117 tons. This season on-mountain operations have joined the effort, not only recycling food waste, but by investing in compostable corn based tableware and cups, a great deal of waste from off the mountain is now being composted.
