TJ wins waste management contract for Southsea Food Festival

TJ Waste has won the contract to provide waste management services for Southsea Food Festival this weekend (15 and 16 July). The Festival will be located in Palmerston, Clarendon and Osborne Roads, as well as Avenue de Caen.

We’ve been employed to provide a number of eurobins, which will be dotted around the Festival site to capture any waste generated during the weekend. 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’ve worked with many times before, providing assistance on a range of projects and events.

The Festival, Portsmouth’s ultimate family foodie event, is free to attend and will consist of dozens of stalls from some of the best food and drink producers in the area. 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.

A wide range of products will be on offer, from chocolate and cake to sausages, cheese, condiments and even Portsmouth aged rum. There will be plenty of options for veggies, vegans and those who are gluten or dairy-free too. 

You’ll be able to watch meals being produced and even pick up some new skills with live displays from the pros. There will also be an acoustic live stage featuring local musical talent 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 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. 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.

The provision of eurobins for this event is part of our Event Waste Management service, which can be tailored to suit the needs of your event, whatever they may be. We offer a range of services from eurobin and skip hire, to the provision of staff provision for litter picking and emptying bins during the event, as well as post-event clean up.
