CleanEvent Services supports Plastic Waste Reduction

CleanEvent Services is supporting an initiative designed to reduce plastic waste at the London Stadium. Recup reusable plastic cups are being used to serve draft beverages, reducing plastics waste and raising awareness of the environmental problems caused by plastic usage.

West Ham United and the London Stadium are running the trial with the Premier League and Sky Ocean Rescue to encourage fans to “pass on plastic”.

Working with service partner Vinci Facilities, CleanEvent Services is providing a dedicated team during events responsible for reusable cup retrieval. Green collection points are available on the concourse and in hospitality areas for fans to return their cups and the CleanEvent Services Cup Collection Squad are responsible for retrieving cups from all other stadium locations and the waste streams. The cups are then washed and reused, saving more than 20,000 single use plastic cups at each event.

Tomas Gronager, CEO, CleanEvent Services commented: “We are proud to support this great initiative, helping to reduce single use plastic.”
