Environmentally Conscious

We believe in being green and helping our environment. That’s why our facility recycles, uses energy efficient lighting, employs water outtake controls and has gas appliances. We also recycle at events, utilize limited printed media and dispose of any grease at specified drop-off locations for use in livestock feed and biodiesel.
