Recycling

Put recyclables in their place

The 500 Festival is committed to making the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon a fun and environmentally-friendly event. Pepsi generously provides recycling bins at the end of Runners' Services for the nearly 40,000 Mini-Marathon participants and throughout Military Park at the 500 Festival Post Race Party. Waste Management  will supply the dumpsters to collect and sort the recycled items.

Several food items that will be handed out at the race and the Post Race Party will have recyclable containers. Cardboard, plastic bottles and aluminum cans can all be placed in the royal blue recycling bins. Recycling bins will also be placed throughout the two-day Mini-Marathon Expo to encourage recycling of plastic water bottles and other recyclable materials.
