Wynn Las Vegas is committed to minimizing the impact of our resorts
on the environment.
Wynn Las Vegas and Encore proudly work with Clean The World, a non-profit charitable organization that is committed to preventing millions of deaths caused by hygiene-related illnesses, specifically in children under the age of 5. By collecting, recycling and distributing used soap and shampoo products from our hotel rooms every day, Clean The World and Wynn are collectively saving lives and the planet, domestically and internationally. For more information about Clean The World: www.cleantheworld.org.
Resort waste is sorted off-site into recyclables such as paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and various metals. The hotel is aggressive with food-waste recycling initiatives and purchasing programs to reduce unnecessary packaging. Additionally, Wynn is implementing a composting solution for all green flower and landscaping waste.
Natural light is a key element in the design of the resort, adding beauty and energy efficiency. There is energy efficient lighting in many areas and we are implementing motion sensors and automatic timers in offices and meeting spaces. All HVAC equipment, pumps, motors and other heavy equipment exceed efficiency standards wherever possible.
We have incorporated over five acres of artificial turf, saving over 15 million gallons of water annually. Non-potable water is used for landscaping, and the drip irrigation system is computerized to forecast temperature, wind and humidity levels to deliver the minimum amount of water needed. Guest rooms feature flow control devices in the sinks, showers and commodes. Linens and towels are replaced only at a guest's request. The hotel minimizes its chemical impact through organic landscape products and biological pest control methods.
