AMS summer of fun: how we’ve been supporting local businesses and events

Like most people, we have been busy this summer getting out and about and enjoying the weather.

With events in full swing we have been all over the country providing waste management solutions and participating in events. We wanted to share some of the things that we have been up to over the past few months.

Glastonbury Festival

Where: Pilton, Somerset

We started the summer off in June with processing around 900 tonnes of waste from Glastonbury Festival. The waste was delivered to our Southwood site and we were able to recycle it all, stopping any of it going to landfill.

Pilford Heath Transport & Heritage Show

Where: Wimborne, Dorset

We took a few of our new trucks to the Pilford Heath Transport and Heritage Show on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th July.

Standing proud was our new 6 wheel grab lorry, a skip lorry, our fleet support vehicle and ourTransport Manager’s van.

Our grab lorry was even part of one of the displays, so it had its moment in the spotlight!

Great Dorset Chilli Festival

Where: Sturminster Newton, Dorset

On the 6th and 7th August, we were down at the Stock Gaylard Estate in Sturminster Newton for the Great Dorset Chilli Festival.

If you were there, you would have spotted our 1100 litre and 360 litre bins around the festival collecting all the public’s waste from the festival. There were around 40 of these bins, so a lot of waste was collected across the 2 days from the footfall of the event.

We also provided a RoRo container that was used for the litter pickers to dispose of the waste that they collected and for the trade stands to throw away any rubbish that they produced. .

As the festival was a 2 day event, with a large number of people attending, we offered an out of hours service so that the bins could be emptied on Sunday morning ready for the new day to start.

Mudeford Lifeboat Funday

Where: Christchurch, Dorset

On Sunday 7th August, we were also at the Mudeford Lifeboat Funday at Mudeford’s lifeboat station.

We provided 8 1100 litre wheelie bins for this event to collect trade waste and any waste produced by the visitors attending.

Surf Life Saving National Championships

Where: Bournemouth, Dorset

The SLSGB Surf Championships came down to Bournemouth and were held at Branksome Chine the week of the 15th August.

From masters to youth competitions, there was some top quality surfing… and if we do say so ourselves, some top quality waste collection thanks to the 6 1100 litre wheelie bins that we provided.

Mid Somerset Agricultural Show

Where: Shepton Mallet, Somerset

Over the weekend of the 21st August we sponsored the Mid Somerset Agricultural Show. Our Southwood site received the waste from the event, processed it all and recycled as much as possible. Once again, we were happy that zero waste went to landfill.

If you are running an event, and are looking for a company to process your waste with the environment at the forefront of their mind, get in touch with us to learn how we can help. Call 01202 579579, or email us at enquiries@avonmaterialsupplies.co.uk.

Big Bike Bash Charity Festival

Where: Bransgore, Hampshire

Over the bank holiday weekend, we will be supporting the Big Bike Bash at Avon Tyrell House in Bransgore, by supplying waste management.

This family friendly event is a mountain bike, music and beer festival that is run by the registered charity Action Academy. All proceeds are going to support UK Youth and its work with young people at Avon Tyrrell.

For this event we are providing a 15 yard RoRo for general waste collection during the event.

Looking for event waste management?

Avon Material Supplies has a variety of solutions that can work perfectly for your event. Whether you are just looking for a RoRo container for behind the scenes, or if you need wheelie bins for waste stations across the event, or you need a combination of public facing and behind the scenes waste management solutions, we can help.

Commercial wheelie bins

We have a range of wheelie bin sizes that can be combined to create the perfect solution for your event.

Wheelie bin sizes available are:

  • 1100L wheelie bin hire
  • 660L wheelie bin hire
  • 360L wheelie bin hire
  • 240L wheelie bin hire

If you are looking to save a bit of money, and the environment, we can also provide separate wheelie bins for recycling and general waste.

Call us on 01202 579579 to discuss our commercial wheelie bin hire.

Skip hire

If your event has stools and trade stands, you might want to consider having something a little larger sat behind the scenes to collect their waste.

For smaller events, a skip might be the best solution for you.

Skip sizes we offer include:

  • 4 yards
  • 6 yards
  • 8 yards
  • 12 yards

If you are unsure which size would suit your event, get in touch with our skip sales team on 01202 579579.

RoRo Containers

For larger events a RoRo container is a good idea to have behind the stools to collect the trade waste. This will be able to collect large amounts of waste, meaning that you can reduce the amount of times a vehicle will have to come to site and collect the waste for disposal.

Organising an event for next year?

Hopefully, this article gives you a bit more of an idea on how Avon Material Supplies can help you with your waste management at your event.

If you are still a little unsure, we are always happy to discuss your event and waste management solutions with you and your team, so please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on 01202 579579 or email us at enquiries@avonmaterialsupplies.co.uk.
