TJ provides waste management services for Portsmouth Pride 2022

TJ Waste provided waste management services for Portsmouth Pride, a one-day event which took place on Southsea Common on Saturday 11 June 2022.

The event is free and open to the whole community, bringing together LGBTQIA+ people to celebrate diversity and inclusivity in the local area. The day kicked off at midday and featured an array of musical and entertainment acts that were enjoyed by all.

TJ Waste was awarded the waste management contract by Colas. We provided a number of 1,100l eurobins for the event to enable waste to be collected throughout the day and minimise litter around the site. The bins were delivered to the Common the day before and collected the following day.

The bins were taken back to our Tipner Materials Recovery Facility for sorting and segregating. We’re dedicated to diverting waste from landfill and we recycle up to 100% of the waste we handle. We have established recycling routes for a wide range of materials from the standard card, paper, metal and plastic bottles, to the more tricky materials such as rubble, hard plastics and mattresses. 

We’re always working behind the scenes to find new ways to recycle the materials that have proved difficult in the past. Any materials that cannot be reused or recycled are directed down the Energy from Waste (EfW) path wherever possible.

We process all materials in line with WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) protocol. WRAP’s mission is to accelerate the move to a sustainable, resource-efficient economy by re-inventing how we design, produce and sell products, re-thinking how we use and consume products, and re-defining what is possible through reuse and recycling.
