TJ supports the Clanfield Challenge for fifth year


TJ Waste is donating waste management services to the Clanfield Challenge 2022, which will take place on Sunday 15 May. This is the fifth time that TJ has donated services to the Challenge; they did so for the previous four Challenges between 2016 and 2019 as well.

TJ will supply three 1100-litre eurobins and an 8-yard skip for the event. The bins and skip will be delivered to the site on Friday 13 May and collected on Monday 16 May. The waste generated will be taken to our Portsmouth Materials Recovery Facility for sorting to ensure all recyclable items are separated and that the rest of the waste is directed down the most appropriate routes.

TJ is dedicated to diverting waste from landfill and we endeavour to 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. 

TJ are 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.

TJ processes 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.

The Clanfield Challenge is an annual event, now in its fifth year. It was set up to raise money for local charities and projects and local causes can apply for grants of up to £500 which will be funded from the profit pot.

In recent years, the money raised has been used for many local projects including repairs to St James’ Church in Clanfield, music lessons for pupils at Petersgate Infant School, a disabled access bench at Clanfield Junior School, a football kit for Clanfield Youth FC, a new local support group set up by Butser Home Start, and sensory play equipment for the Elizabeth Foundation.

The event was originally set up by volunteers from Serenity Digital and Clanfield Joggers in collaboration with Clanfield Online, a website funded by local businesses for the benefit of the community.

The Challenge itself consists of five races, giving you the choice of 1, 2, 5, 12 or 20 kilometres of stunning Hampshire countryside. The 1km race is for under 6s, the 2km for 5-12 year olds, the 5km for over 11s, the 12km for over 15s and the 20km for over 17s.

In addition to providing waste management services for events, TJ Waste also specialises in domestic and commercial skip hire, grab hire and commercial waste management.

We offer skips in a range of sizes from 2-yard mini skips up to 12-yard jumbo skips, as well as commercial roll-on-roll-off containers, which come in 17 or 35-yard sizes. Check out our skip hire pages for details on the capacity of each skip. The standard skip hire period is up to 14 days, though a ‘skip exchange’ arrangement – when your full skip is swapped for an empty one at your request – can be agreed for larger or longer-term projects. A 5% discount is offered at point of booking if you book the skip collection for within 4 days of delivery.

Grab hire is useful for domestic projects such as large-scale landscaping and redoing driveways as it will enable large volumes of waste to be removed quickly and easily, providing there is sufficient access to the property. For larger construction projects, grab hire is ideal as much larger volumes of waste can be taken away in one go and access is not usually an issue.

Our commercial waste management services enable us to provide total or partial site waste management, a Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) or waste management for events. We can manage a range of waste streams including general waste, recycling, confidential waste or specialist waste removal such as WEEE, asbestos, liquids, mattresses or fridge-freezers.

TJ Waste’s General Manager Luke Haskell said: “We’re thrilled to be providing these services again after a two-year absence due to Covid. We’re keen to support community events such as this and we’re looking forward to contributing to the smooth-running of the event by delivering the first-class service we’re known for.”
