Chelsea has announced a 100 per cent rate for recycling waste at Stamford Bridge and the Cobham training ground.

The Blues have teamed up with recycling specialists Powerday, meaning that even food and contaminated waste can now be processed at a recycling facility.
The deal means that none of the waste from Stamford Bridge or Cobham goes to landfill.

Chelsea Finance and Operations Director, Chris Alexander said: “We are delighted to be working with Powerday, who share our view that we must do all we can to help reduce our impact on the environment. Our commitment to this is something we take extremely seriously.

“We have a number of initiatives to get our staff and fans aware of their own impact on the environment as well as installing energy efficient systems at both Stamford Bridge and Cobham, which is one of the most environmentally-friendly training grounds in the world.”

Stamford Bridge has a match-day capacity of 41,841 which can generate huge waste including drinks bottles, food, packaging and also general office waste.

Mick Crossan, Powerday Managing Director said: “Powerday is proud of its association with Chelsea and commends the club's commitment to recycling.

“We are delighted to announce this new contract and look forward to continuing a relationship that benefits the club, Powerday and the environment.”
