From composting horse manure to recycling used horseshoes, Circle D cast members are committed to reducing their waste stream to achieve their zero-waste goal.
Here's a sample of what Circle D diverts from landfills:
...All used horseshoes and stainless steels metals are recycled and old horse accessories are repurposed by Resort Echancement.
...Circle D composts manure, hay and shavings. Resort restaurants partner with Circle D by bringing coffee grounds to be composted as well.
...Soft plastics are recycled, such as bags bedding arrives in.
...Circle D neighbors the Environmental Activity Center, which makes it possible to recycle large quantities of propylene bailing twine used for hay, plus miscellaneous rigid plastics.
...At the cast commissaries, the team plans to use reusable mugs and eco to-go containers,receiving 20 cents off for every meal purchase and beverage refill.
These efforts and the leadership team's support showcases Circle D's COURAGE to commit to simple changes for the environment.
We all seen the horses on Main Street,U.S.A. in Disneyland Park, but do you know where these horses really live? Backstage, north of Frontierland in Disneyland Park, there is a working ranch, called Circle D Corral. I have seen this working ranch when I was backstage,over the years. Way nice!!
Here are some fun facts about Disneyland Park Circle D Ranch:
...The ranch is currently home to 28 horses, a jersey cow,two miniature donkeys, three turkeys and 15 goats.
...48 cast members work at the ranch.
...All the horses are large "draft" horses(Draft Horses are horses that are adapted to pull heavyloads).
...The following breeds of horses are represented at Circle D: Percheron, Clydesdale, Belgian and Shire.
...No Disneyland horse works more than 4 hours a day, 3 days a week.
...And, like all cast members, the horses at Disneyland Park always wear their name tags when they are working.
Zero waste,nice....DR LEE
