Torrance, CA -- Krikorian Premiere Theatres (KPT) first began their green efforts by removing 35mm projectors and converting all auditoriums to digital projection.
"We had already taken a big step by removing 35mm film from the equation," said Todd Cummings, VP of Operations, "but we wanted to find different ways to do more for the environment."
KPT chose to partner with Business Waste Management who did a thorough audit and analysis of the waste streams, volumes and service levels at each Krikorian location. While most locations were already recycling, new strategies were implemented at all locations to not only cut waste, but cut waste expense by 40%.
"Everyone wins in this situation," said Kathy Walsh, owner of Business Waste Management. "Krikorian cut their costs, we get to add another satisified customer to our list and KPT's environmental impact is reduced."
