Donington Park announces partnership with Bakers Waste
Donington Park is pleased to confirm a new waste partnership with Leicester-based firm Bakers Waste Services.
The deal has seen a number of new ‘intelligent’ large capacity bins delivered to the circuit to be used in the paddock and across the estate. Each of these bins is microchipped which enables automatic digital weighing when a refuse lorry picks them up. This allows the circuit not only to monitor its waste but also put provisions in place to make reductions.
Bakers Waste then remove the waste and it is sorted, segregated, processed, and recycled. The food waste generated stays in the County and is turned into energy which powers 30,000 homes in Leicestershire.
This deal is further evidence of Donington’s commitment to reduce waste output, with the circuit already using hundreds of thousands of tonnes of pulverised fuel ash from Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station in the recent restoration of the infield.
Donington Park Estate Development Manager Robert Commons commented: “We are delighted to be working with Bakers Waste to monitor and reduce our waste output. With a venue like ours, waste management is a critical subject, and one we’re very conscious of. We’re keen to reaffirm our green credentials too, and working with Bakers Waste, a family-run business, will enable us to focus more on what we can do to protect our environment.”
Bakers Waste commented: “We are thrilled to be helping Donington Park to dispose of their waste efficiently. Their commitment to reducing waste, the environment and the local area is commendable and we are delighted to work with them on solutions to support their exacting standards.”
