Huddersfield Town’s PPG Canalside Sports Complex is home to the club’s First Team and Academy. In recent years the site has undergone significant improvements and redevelopment as it shapes itself for the club’s sporting future. Orchard Facilities Management has been advising PPG Canalside management on waste, recycling, environmental compliance and operational efficiency.

Orchard Facilities Management has helped PPG Canalside develop a new waste strategy to reduce running costs at the ground. The work has included a full review of site needs, set up of new contracts with waste and recycling suppliers and providing PPG Canalside’s management with one point of contact for all their environmental management.

Justin Holley of Orchard Facilities Managment said:

“We have worked with PPG Canalside to plan a more efficient and cost effective way to dispose of waste and to increase recycling.

“As well as resulting in a more greener site it has also helped reduce running costs through operational efficiency.

“Orchard Facilities Management continually monitors heir waste management to ensure we have the most environmentally beneficially and economically sound solution in place. We look for ways to help PPG Canalside reduce landfill waste, improve recycling rates and introduce operational efficiencies.

“As Orchard Facilities Management’s range of services is expanding we are able to suggest new ways of supporting them, working behind the scenes to streamline processes wherever possible.”

Sean Jarvis of Huddersfield Town said:

“Our partnership with Orchard Facilities Management has brought tangible benefits to the complex. We are making genuine savings thanks to the new systems that have been implemented across the site and we are continuing to work together to see how we can further improve things in the future.

“PPG Canalside is always evolving and Orchard Facilities Management is playing an important part in our development, making sure we start as we mean to go on, operating as efficiently as we can and with as little impact as possible on our environment.”
