Lord’s recycles as much waste as possible.
Separated waste streams include glass, food, cardboard packaging, wood, metals, electronic waste and batteries, paints and solvents. While on match days we ask our customers to separate general waste and recyclable waste into our colour-coded bins
Unused food donated to local people in need and food waste used to generate energy.
First and foremost, Lord's tries to manage food ordering to minimise the amount of food waste produced. When there is unused edible food, that meets all health and hygiene requirements, we offer food to the local community through a partnership with food redistribution charity City Harvest.
Waste food than can not be used for human consumption is kept separate. The food is mechanically dewatered on-site (to reduce weight and volume) and is sent for anaerobic digestion, a process that produces ‘bio-gas’ which can then be used to generate electricity. The waste left at the end of this process is used as a soil improver for agriculture.
