William Tracey and Spectrum aim for zero waste Ryder Cup


Spectrum Service Solutions and William Tracey Group will be providing the first ever zero waste to landfill Ryder Cup when it takes place this week.

The golf competition between Europe and USA takes place at Gleneagles in Scotland with the teams competing over the weekend.


Around 500 tonnes of waste will be gathered and recycled from up to 45,000 spectators each day.

William Tracey Group managing director non hazardous waste Robin Stevenson said: “We are delighted to be working again with Spectrum Service Solutions at The 2014 Ryder Cup to deliver this zero waste to landfill event. The Ryder Cup provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase everything that is great about this country and an important part of this is Scotland’s position as a global leader in recycling and sustainable resource management.

Spectrum managing director Sara Speirs (pictured with William Tracey and Ryder Cup representatives Sean Keenan and Paul Dunstan respectively) added: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract. It’s a major event in the world’s sporting calendar and it signals the realisation of our aim to become Scotland’s premier event cleaning company. We are already established in many other sectors for contract cleaning, facilities management and specialist cleaning, and management of waste. However, this latest win highlights our versatility and understanding of all the markets we operate in.”
