Shanks Wakefield Disposal Company | Sports Stadium Waste Management Specialist

Sports Stadium Waste Management Specialist

Shank Wakefield is the proud waste management service that is partnered with a majority of sports grounds across the United Kingdom.

Our biggest portfolio covers that of the UK cricketing body. We have over 20 cricketing grounds on our books and we maintain a weekly service before and after events that take place throughout a season.

We share with you our triumphs in this field of waste service.

Changing the environment within sport

Like many stadia throughout the country, cricket can have a large impact on the environment this can come through using non-renewable energy to light the grounds of a late evening match or through mismanagement of recycling general waste.

With Shank Wakefield disposal company, we set out a two-tier program that helps not only collect waste but to implement new environmentally friendly procedures into the business to help reduce their carbon footprint and become more eco-friendly in their service to the local area.

The regrowth of our business

Shank Wakefield started as a landscape management service bank in 2003, maintaining council property, tree excavation, forestry and plenty more. This was long before we joined up with Co2 Sense back in 2011. Shank Wakefield has a long understanding of environmental services and how important they are when carried out correctly. We opened our first recycling plant in Grimsby once all the fisheries we closed down and land ownership became more affordable. Our plants grew across the north of Great Britain and in with further investment in 2013 we expanded our fleet of waste vehicles on the road, which we hope by 2035 will be fully zero-emission.

With our management office now in Leeds, we can control a huge area of the north and offer our services out to the best sporting grounds in the UK.

Why Sports Stadiums?

Sporting events dominate our landscape and though they may just look like secluded areas of land, they generate huge amounts of energy that would surprise many of those that attend.

Some of the major football and cricket grounds in the UK, burn up more energy in a single weekend than what a single house would use in a year.

This is why we focus on sporting stadia because the demands on the planet are so huge and we’re just talking about the UK. This is a global issue, every country, every state, and town, there are these huge problems that need to have the right investment and services that help stem the tide of damaging emissions given off by often out-of-date systems.

Changes with the sports arenas

We have been involved in many changes within the sporting environment and none more so than with the biggest UK cricket grounds.

From the simple management tasks of ground waste and disposal recycling to renewable energy solutions, we have help cut emissions by 15% in some larger grounds and 35% in the more local grounds run predominately by the councils.


Our work at Shank Wakefield is in sponsored partnership with they are associated with all sporting grounds in the UK and are able to sponsor our company, as well as back the interest of gamblers that wish to pursue the best in online cricket services.

So impressed were we with the service, we actively got one of our partners to sponsor their service. is a betting site based in India and the market for cricket out there is huge, people bet on cricket like nothing else.

We have cut the cost of energy at Lord by about 17% and we are now investing in grass recycling schemes that will help reduce the use of chemicals and pesticides. We set up a new incentive with Shank Wakefield for those that like to bet during the games. A new cricket betting kiosk that supports free cricket betting to those that recycle their waste at our ground’s facility. It’s been a huge success so far.”
