With events across Scotland, the Central Belt, Highlands and Islands, including the Western Isles, the Binn Group events team will be out-and-about across the country.

Andy Hay, Logistics and Events Manager, said: “The service we have delivered over the last few years has been recognised as highly-effective and we’re getting plenty of calls from event organisers as they finalise their planning.”

Among a raft of events, this year’s planning includes The Scottish Game Fair in Scone Parklands, Etape Caledonia, Soul Survivor Festival at Lendrick Muir, Perth Racecourse’s summer meets and the St. Andrews Polo Tournament.

Andy added: “Last year’s work strengthened existing relationships and created new partnerships. We have a long-standing arrangement with Perth based Scotloo / Scotbox, which enables us to provide a comprehensive waste management service for both liquid and solid waste. With over 20 years of experience in this sector we have worked hard to create a one-stop service.

“We know that a successful event is all about – planning, communication and contingency. Binn Group prides itself on being one of the most experienced event waste management service providers. We know that it’s all about the event and making it happen so that attendees have a great experience. We’re here to work away and make sure that our services are delivered discreetly and effectively,” he said.

“We ensure that, wherever possible, we get involved right from the start. This enables us to add value with our in-house experience. Our team support the vision and consultation stages and we are still there at the end when the final piece of litter is cleared, and the last bin leaves the site.”

Binn Group delivers what each customer requires when they need it. At events, this can often mean diverting additional resources, or increasing waste collection to suit changing needs, due to capacity or weather.

“Having resources to be able to react and respond effectively often sees us go the extra mile for clients,” explained Andy. “This is always appreciated and helps our customers deliver a great event.”

Binn Group has a strong track record in both handling waste during the event and site remediation. The Binn Group events package also ensures that 100% of waste taken from the event will be diverted from landfill. Waste will be recycled, recovered or processed for use as a fuel, which minimises the environmental impact of events.
