St. Louis, Missouri – Chaifetz Arena, in partnership with Delaware North, is proud to join Anheuser-Busch’s National Recycling League – a multi-sports league coalition aiming to reduce waste on gamedays – by installing two Cycle Reverse Vending Machines (RVMs). The installation makes Chaifetz Arena the first collegiate basketball arena to utilize the machines.

The machines are designed to engage fans and incentivize recycling efforts, with the goal of inspiring guests to recycle and reuse at Chaifetz Arena. 

Guests at Chaifetz Arena will now be able to dispose of their empty beverage containers by inserting them into the RVM and scanning the QR code. The machine will then populate a unique transaction ID, which will prompt the user to fill out a questionnaire to see if they won. Guests will find out instantly whether they have won, along with instructions on how to redeem their prize.
