Circus Circus Las Vegas is dedicated to conservation and sustainability. We recognize the importance of preserving the planet's natural resources through responsible practices. The Circus Circus Las Vegas was awarded 4 keys in the Green Key Eco-Rating program, which evaluated resorts based on their green operations. Below are some highlights of our accomplishments.
Since water is a precious resource, we have implemented a towel and linen reuse program. Please take note of the card conveniently placed in the guestrooms that explains how you can help save water by reusing your towels and linens.
A recent retrofit of the Lucky the Clown marquee on Las Vegas Blvd. involved replacing more than 15,000 incandescent bulbs with energy efficient fluorescent panels. The resulting energy savings is equivalent to the annual usage of nearly 200 average American homes.
The heating and cooling equipment at Circus Circus were upgraded with energy efficient technology such as combustion controls for the large hot water boilers and variable frequency drives for the cold air chillers. These upgrades save natural gas and reduce the need for electricity at peak periods of demand.
Many restrooms have been upgraded with low flow sinks and toilets that conserve potable water.
Recycling and Waste Management
Circus Circus has a very robust recycling program on its back dock. Guests can be assured that their recyclables such as paper, plastic, aluminum, cardboard and glass will be sorted and recycled. Circus Circus has increased its recycling rate over the last three years since recycling started in 2008.
In the spirit of ‘reduce’, Circus Circus offers its old furnishings to the community and often times raises money for its philanthropy fund through liquidations.
Sustainable Supply Chain
To reduce paper waste, telephone books were eliminated from all rooms. Telephone books are available on request for guests.
Outreach and Education
Circus Circus holds Green Fairs for its employees to raise awareness about energy conservation, water conservation, and community recycling. Thousands of Circus Circus Las Vegas employees have received energy efficient light bulbs and water smart aerators for their sinks for use in their homes.
Circus Circus employees can carpool to work using the Club Ride program; reducing exhaust emissions and reducing traffic.
