Waste World Cup Semi Finalists

Waste World Cup 2017

Simply Waste Solutions took part in the 15th annual waste industry 6-a-side tournament – Waste World Cup, in support of WasteAid UK on the 1st of September 2017.

The tournament saw 30 mixed-gender teams take part to be named the sector’s football champion.

2017 saw more teams enter than ever before making it a great day for networking with other companies in the waste industry whilst having fun.

It was hosted on the playing fields at the University of Northampton’s Park Road campus. The university runs a number of academic courses relevant to the waste management and recycling sector.

We took 7 players on the day and started with a fantastic 2-1 win over LKM Recycling. Following our victory, we drew with Sharpsmart and Grundon and we went on to lose our final game 2-0. The final went on to see Biffa just lose out on penalties against Mick George.

Overall, we finished 4th in the tournament which is a great achievement and are proud of the whole team.
