Waste Management Greenopolis Kiosk Arrives on The BLVD

Lancaster Performing Arts Center Hosts Interactive Recycling Kiosk

Lancaster, CA. 3/14/2011 – The first Waste Management Greenopolis Kiosk in the Antelope Valley arrived today at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center. The Greenopolis community, sponsored by Waste Management, aims to make recycling easy and rewarding through their online and on the street programming.  On the street, the Greenopolis Kiosk is an interactive recycling station where the public can bring their recyclable containers, receive points redeemable for discounts on tickets to LPAC shows, and, ultimately, donate to the LPAC Arts for Youth program.  Online, recyclers can track their points, play recycling games and interact with other online community members to learn more about conservation and how to keep their communities clean.

“The City of Lancaster is always looking for ways to improve the community and benefit our citizens,” stated Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris.  “The addition of Greenopolis to The BLVD is not only a ‘green’ advantage for our city, but also a resource for increasing exposure to the arts for both recyclers and community youth.”

“The new Greenopolis Kiosk is a great way to get Lancaster residents excited about recycling,” explains Sandra Pursley, Community Relations Manager with WM.  “You can win amazing prizes, support a great local community organization and help the environment at the same time, just by recycling!”

The WM Greenopolis Kiosk arrived in celebration of The Aluminum Show, sponsored by Waste Management, showing Tuesday, March 15th and Wednesday, March 16th at 7:00pm, at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center.

The Aluminum Show, a unique and energetic experience for the entire family, is a stimulating tour de force which combines movement, dance, visual theater and plenty of humor. In the show, talented dancers and actors breathe life into recycled aluminum-tone industrial materials to tell the story of a young machine determined to reunite with its long lost parents. During its travels through a futuristic world ruled by bizarre technology, it finds adventure, excitement and even a human friend, who does whatever it takes to get it back home in one piece.

The Aluminum Show uses recovered materials from industrial factories that are re-used to build the set, dress the cast and interact with the audience. As industrial materials are given new and surprising contexts, then combined with visual effects, lighting manipulations and enchanting music, all senses are on high alert. With sights and sounds universal to all, this is visual entertainment at its best.

In partnership with Waste Management, the Lancaster Performing Arts Center has pledged to recycle all of the recyclables collected through the concession recycling bins and contribute their proceeds in the name of Waste Management to the Arts for Youth program. Patrons who attend the public performances of The Aluminum Show will have the chance to sign their own recycling pledge at the Waste Management booth in the LPAC lobby before or after the show. All patrons who sign their own pledge to recycle at home will be entered to win six-months of FREE residential trash service from Waste Management. One patron from each public performance will be chosen to win.
