Recycling Facts Sheffield Half Marathon


The bulk of the waste from the Sheffield Half Marathon as to be expected was plastic water bottles and we estimate each runner consumed on average 4 bottles The waist weight is slightly inaccurate as some bottles still have water remaining in them so we estimate the true recycled weight to be around 2 tonnes this is taken to a local transfer station for recycling and processing.


Litter Picking & Road Sweeping Sheffield Half Marathon

The whole course had to be swept by a road sweeper prior to the event taking place to ensure it was safe for all taking part and to remove any trip hazards the whole course was then swept by the road sweeper and litter picked but the Clearance And Clean Up Ltd team on completion with some great help from the volunteers and the Run for All Staff.

I needed my garage cleaning and found these guys on the internet. It was a great service from beginning to end. Tom who answered the phone was very polite and accommodating to my needs. I work shifts so I explained to Tom that it needed the rubbish collecting after 11 and before 1 due to my shift and sleep patterns! We arranged a time off 11.30, the lads who did the job turned up on time as agreed and were polite. They were real hard workers and cleared the garage in no time at all. All in it was a really professional and efficient service. I would definitely use them again and recommend to friends.

Highly recommended. Having been let down by Veolia, who wouldn’t pick up the rubbish, supposedly because of access to my property, I was delighted that it was no problem for this company. Tom very trustworthy and straightforward on the phone. They did exactly what they said they would do and for a very fair price too.

These guys were brilliant. They were very fast and efficient at replying to my initial query, quoting and carrying out the job (garage clear out ready for house move). I can’t really say if their prices are comparable to others as I’ve not used a company for this before but I thought they were reasonable.

Had these guys clear an outbuilding and despite them charging per hour, they were like machines and got the job done in no time! Cheaper than we have had previously - by a marginal amount granted, but their service was far superior, so all in all very competitive! Turned up exactly when arranged, extremely pleased with them and would DEFINITELY use again!!
