Binn Group’s vastly experienced events management team are gearing up for their biggest ever direct contract – the Longines FEI European Eventing Championship 2015 at Blair Castle.
Over 55,000 spectators are expected to attend the four-day event, along with around 75 horse and rider combinations from 17 competing nations, over 200 trade stands and staff, catering and hospitality and all the ancillary and support services.
And Binn Group will be dealing with all the waste they generate – from the straw in the stables to the empty chip wrappers.
Binn Group has been handling the waste management contract for the Blair Castle event for several years but, as event manager Andy Hay explained, this year’s European profile takes things up a notch.
“The crowds attending are expected to increase by around 25% this year,” he said. “This is where the experience and expertise of Binn Group comes into its own to ensure a seamless and hassle-free operation for the client.
“Binn Group operatives will arrive on site a week before the first fence is jumped and work around the clock until the last sweetie paper is cleared several days after the last horse trots off home.”
The event runs from September 10-13 and Binn Group will have a constant changeover of Eurobins, skips and 40 yard containers collecting and transferring waste from the site to their recycling complex at Glenfarg across a two-week period.
