Happy passengers! “We’ve had quite a few comments about the new Haws units,” says Pittman. “Passengers like the touchless feature of the bottle dispenser part of the unit.” And because passengers no longer need to force their bottles under the drinking fountain bubbler to fill up, the project has created less water waste and mess.
The bottle counter features also align with RNO’s sustainability efforts. “This information is reported quarterly and published annually as part of our Sustainability Report as to how many plastic bottles have been diverted/eliminated from the public landfills,” says Pittman.
