Trash & Recycling

The most important step when addressing the issue of trash is to avoid generating it in the first place. At Black Rock we dramatically reduce our trash generation by practicing the following steps:


  • Use of glass recyclable bottles for soft drinks and beer
  • Purchase produce in the local markets and purchase in bulk to reduce packaging waste


  • Avoid the purchase of products that come in plastic containers
  • Encourage guests and staff to re-fill drinking containers instead of purchasing new ones (drinking water is provided free of charge in our restaurant from a water cooler.)
  • Attempt, where possible, to not use any disposable receptables or containers in tours or other lodge operations
  • Separate and recycle all glass and plastic from trash
  • Place recycling receptables where staff and guests can easily access them
