Irish company Ryan's Event Cleaning Specialists has been awarded the waste management contract for the UK's largest music event - the V Festival at Weston Park which takes place this weekend. It follows a successful job by Ryan last year.
Ryan expects to employ hundreds of staff at the event, dispose of 450 tonnes of rubbish, and use 7,000 pairs of gloves and 60,000 black sacks.
The 75,000 capacity, two-day event will see vacumn sweeping tractors in operation all night to ensure the premises are maintained in line with regulations.
Ryan recently opened a permanent UK office in Weston Park to enable it to cope with the growing demand for its services in the UK.
The Ryder Cup 2006 which takes place in Co. Kildare is another prestigious event w here Ryan has been awarded the waste management contract.
Founder, Pat Ryan, said: "A waste management action plan is one of the most crucial aspects of any event.
"The key to success is devising a plan that can be co-ordinated into that of the organisers and implementing it in a way that is not apparent to event goers."
