Smiths extend sustainability partnership with Gloucester Rugby

We are delighted to announce that we have extended our partnership with Gloucester rugby for the next three years. .

Smiths will be working with the Club to use our recycling and waste management expertise in support of Gloucester Rugby’s programme of environmental sustainability actions around the stadium. Under the banner Sustain The Game, Gloucester Rugby fans will start to see Gloucester Rugby’s sustainable measures which have been introduced around the stadium.

Smiths will be supporting a network of recycling stations around the Kingsholm site to help with the separation and collection of recyclable materials. All recyclable materials collected will be recycled through the correct channels back into reusable materials, whilst non-recyclable material will be processed by Smiths ‘Waste to Energy’ plants to ensure zero waste to landfill from the Club.

Director of Sustainability, Richard Weller, is pleased to have Smiths sign on.

“We are delighted to have renewed our partnership with Smiths who are a great local company and a real credit to the community. They are an organisation who are making huge inroads into the Waste Management and Recycling sector.

“By placing a number of recycling stations around key locations, we look forward to working closely with them to further assist us in our sustainability programme here at Kingsholm.”

Divisional Manager at Smiths, Tom Broomfield, is delighted to extend the partnership.

“We are pleased to have extended our partnership with Gloucester Rugby and look forward to working closely with the club over the next three years as we look to build on this strong relationship.”
