On target at Sheffield Wednesday FC

Disposables UK has joined forces with Sheffield Wednesday football club to provide products for the washroom facilities in its stadium.

Sheffield Wednesday football club is a high traffic venue with thousands of people coming through the stadium each week. This means that there is a high demand for washroom facilities and a need for them to be of a high standard and cost effective. Sheffield Wednesday's previous supplier for disposable paper toilet tissue and hand towels required an annual outgoing price of £20,000, so the club was keen to reduce costs wherever possible, whilst improving quality and service. Cleaners had to frequently attend to the unreliable dispensers and constantly replenish them.

Disposables UK chose Bay West Revolution and Bay West Optiserv hands-free systems for the club's washrooms due to their cost-saving and waste-reduction qualities. After a referral from Scunthorpe United, through Disposables UK's partnership with the Football Safety Officers Association (FSOA), Sheffield Wednesday selected Bay West on the strength of the quality of the products. The range was selected due to the multiple benefits it offers, including waste reduction, high capacity and cost savings. Sheffield Wednesday Football Club is already saving around £10,000 each year as a result. Disposables UK was even able to provide all the products in Sheffield Wednesday's team colours of blue and white.

Paul Mulready, marketing manager at Disposables UK, said: “We are delighted that our Bay West products are proving so popular in high traffic venues such as Sheffield Wednesday's stadium. The Bay West brand is used already by numerous other sporting and leisure venues throughout the country and they work so well for these sites due to their waste and cost-saving benefits.”

John Rutherford, stadium operations manager at Sheffield Wednesday, said: “I am delighted that the Bay West products have delivered the quality, efficiency and cost savings that were promised and I would have no problem recommending Disposables UK and Bay West to other sporting and leisure venues.”
