December 16, 2014 – Along with the return of purple and teal, the Charlotte Hornets will also be introducing the color green this season after signing a new partnership with Waste Management of Charlotte. As part of the multi-faceted agreement, Waste Management will serve as Time Warner Cable Arena’s waste and recycling partner, helping to minimize the building’s environmental impact.
With this partnership, Time Warner Cable Arena, which hosts more than 150 events each year, will now allow visitors to the facility to flex their green muscles. All 75 trash receptacles throughout Time Warner Cable Arena have been re-branded with the Hornets silhouette and the Waste Management logo. Additionally, Waste Management has donated more than 75 recycling bins that will be paired with the trash bins. The bins will be located throughout the interior of the building, including the concourses, as well as the exterior of the venue, allowing Hornets fans and arena visitors to remain firmly entrenched in the environmental experience while enjoying the entertainment.
