Waste News - Memphis
But the park's layout distinguishes it from many other tourist attractions, cutting down on the amount of trash visitors generate, said Regina Gambill, director of operations for the Graceland Division of Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc.The park is not an enclosed environment like many attractions, such as amusement parks.The company contracts with Browning-Ferris Industries Inc. for weekly pickup, collecting about 13 tons of trash per month in its 40-yard, 30-yard and 8-yard containers, Gambill said.It employs an ecology staff of nine to 16 workers, depending on the time of year, to ensure that all trash finds its way to those containers.They do a phenomenal job to keep trash at-large picked up, she said.Graceland's busiest time is between Memorial Day and Labor Day, Gambill said.Each August, Graceland hosts Elvis Week, which culminates Aug. 15-16 in a candlelight vigil to commemorate the anniversary of Presley's death Aug. 16, 1977.About 30, 000 people attended the 20th anniversary vigil held in 1997, she said.The park adds staff and trash containers to deal with the large crowds and have not had any major waste issue since opening in 1982, she said.We buck up the schedules, if you will, Gambill said.
