MASON, OHIO (April 14, 2015) —Witt Industries recently worked with Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana to furnish waste and recycling receptacles for the newly constructed Yulman Stadium. The 30,000 person capacity stadium is unique because it brings football back to Tulane’s campus for the first time in 39 seasons. The team previously played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, located off campus.
As part of the $75 million stadium project, Witt Industries was chosen to provide nearly 150 waste and recycling receptacles for the stadium, including the concourse areas and club levels. The receptacles provided included a mix of nearly 150 stainless steel recycling and waste receptacles. Tulane chose hood-top units in a classic yet durable stainless steel finish.
“Tulane is very proud to bring football back to our campus and extremely pleased with our selection of Witt waste receptacles and recycling containers,” said Chris Maitre, Director of Sports Facilities at Tulane. “The Witt units are stylist and easy to service. We are excited to offer recycling in our facilities and feel the Witt units enhance the overall fan experience. We like Witt’s protective-base option that allow us to move the units without damaging the unit or the flooring surface,” added Maitre.
“As the leader in providing receptacles for sports venues, Witt was delighted to provide Yulman Stadium with our containers,” said John Winfield, National Sales Manager at Witt Industries. More facilities select Witt receptacles because of their large capacity, ease of service and long life expectancy. We are glad to be a part of Tulane bringing football back to campus and offering recycling solution for the Green Waves,” added Winfield.
