Powerday secures three year Saracens contract

Powerday has secured a three year contract with the newly crowned Aviva Premiership Champions, Saracens RFC.
The London recycling and waste management company has been working with Saracens at their Allianz Park site since 2013 helping the club to achieve their aim of managing a sustainable state-of-the art stadium with zero waste going to landfill. The new contract sees the relationship extended until 2021.
Since its conception in 2013, being as sustainable as possible has been in every aspect of the development at Allianz Park including the materials selected for the build and the construction processes used. This lead to them becoming the first UK sporting stadium to achieve an Excellent rating by the Building Research Establishment Environment Assessment Method (BREEAM) achieving a 28% improvement on the carbon emissions reduction targets set by the London Plan Building Regulations.
Richard Gregg, Allianz Park’s Stadium Director said: “Saracens are delighted to renew with Powerday, who have provided a first-class waste management service across our site and aligned with the club’s sustainability principles.”
Powerday has been assisting Saracens with their sustainability aims by proving a full waste management service. This includes compactors for general waste, anaerobic digestion for food waste, and recycling of plastic and construction materials at Powerday’s primary Materials Recycling Facility at Old Oak Sidings in Willesden Junction, North West London.
Simon Little, Sales and Marketing Director, commented: “We are proud to have worked with Saracens since Allianz Park opened and are delighted to retain the contract. With a clear approach on site and round the clock operations, Powerday offers an ideal service for sporting venues and it’s great to have this recognised.”
