Yorkshire County Cricket Club are committed to reducing the Carbon footprint from activities at Emerald Headingley Stadium.
To reduce the need for single-use plastics, the Club introduced reusable cups for spectators around the ground. Eleven water fountains are available for spectators, who are encouraged to refill bottles in these locations. For the test match we would have an order of 250k single use plastics. This has been replaced with the reusable cups.
We are making the transition from plastic cutlery to wooden, and from plastic straws to paper.
We work with LSS waste management, who remove all waste from the ground and recycle approximately 95% of what they receive. They’re striving to make this 100% and therefore have no waste produced for landfill.
