TJ to provide waste management services for Southsea Food Festival

TJ Waste has won the contract to provide waste management services for the Southsea Food Festival on 16 and 17 July. The Festival, which is taking place for the first time since the pandemic hit, will take over Palmerston, Clarendon and Osborne Roads, as well as Avenue de Caen.

TJ Waste will be providing a number of eurobins, which will be dotted around to capture any waste that is generated during the Festival. The bins will be delivered to the site the day before the event to enable them to be positioned ahead of time.

We were awarded the waste management contract by Portsmouth City Council, who we have worked with many times before, providing assistance on a range of projects and events.

The Festival is free to attend and will consist of dozens of food and drinks stalls offering various different items. Many of these stalls will be from local restaurants and businesses in the Portsmouth area so it’s a great place to discover what’s on offer locally.

There will also be two live music stages which will host performances from local bands, as well as family-friendly entertainment throughout the weekend.

We will collect the bins the day after the event, transporting all the waste back to our Materials Recovery Facility at Tipner for sorting. 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.
