We're thrilled to be working with Organic Roots Catering for delicious, freshly made food options at our summer concerts this year!
Pre-orders for these menu items are available up to four days before each summer concert.
The Arvada Center is committed to sustainability and is teaming up with r.Cup to eliminate single-use waste. By switching to reuse, the Arvada Center is helping reduce waste, CO2 emissions, and overall climate impact.
r.Cup was born from 3 decades of sustainability experience and innovation. They've been at the forefront of awareness and action in the environmental movement, climate change and single-use reduction since 1990.
Q: Where can I get r.Cup?
The Arvada Center is excited to offer r.Cup at all bars throughout the venue.
Q: Where do I return my r.Cup when I’m done?
A: When done, please return used cups to the clearly labeled r.Cup Bins. You can return your used r.Cup at any time, and will need to do so before leaving.
Q: Is it safe to use (and reuse) r.Cup?
A: YES! r.Cup’s reuse system includes commercial washing and sanitization. Reuse is food safe, protects public health, reduces CO2 emissions, stops single-use pollution and reduces waste.
Q: What about COVID-19?
The CDC has determined that the Coronavirus is transmitted via aersoles, not from surface transmission. This fact, combined with the thorough sanitization process r.Cup implements, makes r.Cups completely safe. For more information, please download r.Cup’s handy reuse safety guide at rcup.com.
Q: How and where does r.Cup wash its used cups?
A: After cups are returned to the r.Cup Bins, r.Cup picks up, washes, sanitizes, inspects and then repackages cups. The Denver-based r.Cup Wash Hub operates under all health department regulations and features the latest washing and sanitization technologies from its partner Ecolab - the global leader in water, hygiene and infection prevention solutions and services.
Q: Can I just buy a cup without the drink?
A: r.Cups are not for sale. The cups are the property of the Arvada Center, the same way cups and plates are the property of a restaurant. r.Cup is being used as a solution to the single-use cups that would otherwise be used. Therefore, a drink purchase is required to obtain an r.Cup. The drink purchase does not include the purchase of the cup.
Q: Can I take this cup home with me?
A: No. Please return to the clearly labeled r.Cup Bins so cups can be collected, washed and reused again. It’s important so that we can help keep r.Cup’s cycle of reuse going. r.Cups can be used hundreds of times!
Q: Wait, isn’t this cup plastic? How is this helping?
A: r.Cup is made of #5 Polypropylene plastic which is high quality, durable, food safe, BPA-Free, dishwasher safe, reusable, refillable and easily recyclable.
Each r.Cup can be used hundreds of times. The continued reuse of these cups allows us to displace tons and tons of single-use waste. And, at the end of the day, any damaged cups are upcycled into items even cooler than the r.Cups. It is a closed loop system. We are using plastic to fight plastic!
