WE ARE A ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL EVENT

Hamilton Waste & Recycling
We are delighted to announce our partnership with the team at Hamilton Waste & Recycling to ensure that none of the waste generated at the event ends up in landfill.  Each of us understand the importance of making the event as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible, so while we investigate and develop products to allow us to eradicate plastics completely from our event, this interim step to ensure that zero waste goes to landfill is vital. 

Hamilton is one of Scotland’s leading independent recycling and resource management companies. Founded in 2002, the company provides services to customers across East Lothian and Edinburgh where it operates under its distinctive Tartan Waste brand.

Every individual at the event has a personal responsibility to help do this by making sure that any rubbish they have is placed in the bins that will be provided around the start, finish and course areas of the event.  

Thank you in advance for supporting the event and the team as we all work together to ensure that this is a ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL event!
