The Imps working alongside waste management partner, Ellgia, continue to look at various green initiatives to improve recycling around the stadium and the local area.

The Imps move to partner with Ellgia Recycling has already had a positive effect introducing a number of green initiatives at the club, from installing green compost bins for the grass cuttings at Sincil Bank and at the Soper of Lincoln Elite Performance Centre and the community ‘Imp’ bins that are in place on the route to the stadium from the City Centre for fans to use before and after games.
Alan Welsh, The Imps’ Stadium Manager, is pleased to be working with Ellgia to reduce the amount of waste around the stadium and improve the recycling practices in place around the club as around 20 cubic metres of waste are generated every matchday.
“We want to work towards a better environment, yes we have a lot of waste due to the amount of drink and food that is consumed from our catering points, but we want to ensure that all goes to recycling as far as possible.” He said.
Ellgia Recycling are one of the leading waste management, recycling and skip hire businesses across Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire and East Anglia. City’s waste management partners have invested heavily in their site in Scunthorpe in the machinery and processes to ensure that all materials are recycled or reused working towards a target of “Zero to Landfill”.
