FieldTurf recycles field from Arkansas stadium
FieldTurf has recycled all useable parts of the artificial turf system at War Memorial Stadium in Arkansas. The field was removed and recycled after stadium officials decided to upgrade the surface to FieldTurf Duraspine Pro. The recycled turf from War Memorial will be shredded and converted into useable materials for new artificial turf applications. This recycling innovation is consistent with FieldTurf’s long-standing commitment to the environment.
“We couldn’t be prouder that our surface will represent the first artificial turf field to be fully recycled,” stated War Memorial General Manager Charlie Staggs. “FieldTurf has proven to be the greenest company in the industry with the highest performing products – a combination that is very impressive. We are thrilled to be installing Duraspine Pro – it’s the best turf in the industry.”
“This is a big step forward for our company and our entire industry,” stated FieldTurf CEO Eric Daliere. “Being the first company to successfully remove and recycle a field demonstrates our leadership in the industry on environmental issues.”
FieldTurf fields are now 100% recyclable. When a FieldTurf installation finally comes to the end of its long life, it continues to help our planet. FieldTurf has also launched a “take back” program for both sports fields and landscape applications, whereby FieldTurf will provide customers with the option, in writing, that fields will be recycled at the end of their useful life when replaced with another FieldTurf system.
