Staffordshire Fa Welcome On Board Sustainability Partner

Following the recent launch of The Football Association’s new five-year sustainability strategy, titled Playing for the Future, Staffordshire Football Association are delighted to launch a partnership with local recycling company, Brown Recycling, who will become the Association’s Sustainability Partner.

The partnership will see Staffordshire FA and Brown Recycling working together to support local grassroots football clubs and individuals to become more sustainable with their waste, to make a positive impact on the environment and communities in which we serve. 

Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Brown Recycling are one of Staffordshire’s largest waste management companies. Whether you’re looking for skip hire or total waste management services, you want to know that you’re using the best people for the job, and with almost 100 years of experience operating as a family business, Brown Recycling certainly tick that box. The company help their customers to recover and recycle waste in a responsible and cost-effective manner, utilising recycling technology to reduce waste to landfill.

Gareth Thomas, Commercial & Partnerships Lead at Staffordshire FA: “We’re delighted to develop a partnership with such a well-known and established local brand in Brown Recycling. Having been introduced to Mitch and Andy at a Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce Business Leaders event – and subsequently met Dominique and Rod too – it was very apparent that not only are the company very knowledgeable and passionate about recycling and sustainability, but they are also very passionate about local grassroots football too.”

“As more and more grassroots football clubs across Staffordshire manage and maintain their own facilities, our partnership with Brown Recycling can hopefully assist our member clubs with their total waste management too – whether that be waste, recycling, scrap metal, or skip hire. The recent launch of The FA’s sustainability strategy sets our clear objectives for how football can collectively play its part, and Staffordshire FA’s partnership with Brown Recycling can certainly assist us and our member clubs in achieving some of those objectives.”

“For any grassroots football clubs who are managing their own waste management facilities – or for any organisations or individuals who are looking to hire a skip – we would certainly recommended speaking to Brown Recycling to discuss your individual needs, and we look forward to developing our partnership with Brown Recycling over the course of the 2023/24 football season and beyond.”

Mitch Brown, Co-Managing Director at Brown Recycling: “We are thrilled to have recently agreed on a sponsorship and partnership deal with Staffordshire FA. At Brown Recycling, we strongly believe in sustainable and ethical business practices and doing positive things in our community, and we see this partnership as a fantastic opportunity to help drive environmental responsibility and promote sustainable practices in the football community. We look forward to seeing the positive impacts of this collaboration for many years to come.”

Further details on Staffordshire FA’s partnership with Brown Recycling will be communicated as the partnership develops, but should any grassroots football clubs, or individuals, who are looking to invest in skip hire or total waste management, wish to contact Brown Recycling for a quote in the meantime, please click here.
