    With the help of our official waste and recycling partner Biffa, we managed to recycle 49% of our matchday waste at BT Murrayfield and the Edinburgh Rugby Stadium during the Autumn Nations Series last November. The remaining general waste was converted from waste to energy – we are proud that none of our waste goes to land fill.

    With Biffa’s help we have introduced new segregated bins to the stadium to improve our direct recycling stats and would like to encourage everyone attending this weekend to use these recycling and general waste bins to dispose of your litter responsibly and help us continue to keep matchdays more sustainable.
