Get in! Bywaters blitz the competition at the Waste World Cup

This year marked the 14th anniversary of the Waste World Cup; the premier mixed gender sporting event for companies in waste, recycling and other connected industries.                                                        

With 6 trophies up for grabs, the day proved to be a continuous battle of the fittest, with each team competing for the championship title. The tournament also played host to a number of competitions run throughout the day, giving individual players the chance to win a cash prize!

Our Bywaters football team ranked 3rd place in the league, successfully beating 24 other squads for their top spot. The event, which took place in Northampton, also featured; a barbecue, sponsored charity bar entertainment and a number of football challenges which saw two of Bywaters team players take home a £100 cash prize.

After taking on the Top Bin Challenge - a new edition to the tournament this year, Bywaters’ new Apprentice - Harry Harbard and Sales Executive - Robert Caine both struck Gold, by successfully beating a string of opponents to take home their share of a £100 cash prize. You little beauties!


Despite their initial success, Bywaters eventually succumbed to defeat by Mick George, who won the match 3-1. However the team did not go home empty handed, as the tournament organisers ensured all participants left with goodie bags of memorabilia and sweet treats for the ride home.

Bywaters colleague Mike Davis - UCL Contract Sustainability Manager who participated in the tournament for the first time commented “I really enjoyed the event, it was well organised, great weather, there was a friendly spirit amongst all teams, and as a referee for Hertfordshire County I can confidently say the referees of this event were quality!”
