Walking the GreenPath® at Hamburg Gaming

Hamburg Gaming and Delaware North are committed to responsible and sustainable stewardship of the environment. GreenPath® is Delaware North's award-winning Environmental Management System, and has been in place at Hamburg Gaming since 2009.

A Highlight of our Achievements:

  • Battery Recycling: Hamburg Gaming has instituted an internal system to recycle single-use alkaline batteries. In 2015 we recycled 208 lbs. of batteries, exceeding our expected goal of 100 lbs.
     
  • Fryer Oil Use Reduction: In 2013, Hamburg Gaming implemented a third-party service to filter our fryer oil, thereby extending its life, using less oil, and sending less to our recycler. We used 52% less fryer oil in 2015 compared to 2013, exceeding our reduction by 13,500 lbs.
     
  • Electronic Waste Recycling: Hamburg Gaming has partnered with SunnKing, an electronics recycler, to run an event every Spring that helps benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times. The event is open to the public. In 2016, Hamburg Gaming collected and diverted 29,630 lbs. of E-Waste from the waste stream.
