UEFA has awarded Surge Ambiental, a subsidiary of Sacyr Environment dedicated to the management of privately generated waste, the contract to manage the waste from the VIP tents in the vicinity of the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid during the UEFA Champions League 2019 final on June 1.
This contract consolidates Surge Ambiental’s business as a waste manager in private events. The contract includes the management of the Champions Village and Football Village areas, which will occupy an area of 35,000 m2 and host some 10,000 UEFA guests and VIPs.
On the day of the match, Surge will manage approximately 20,000 kg of waste in different 800-liter containers, open boxes, igloos and self-compactors, where it will be sorted to ensure correct recycling.
During the service, Surge Ambiental will provide the material and human resources necessary for the proper management of the waste, which will be sorted by type (organic matter, paper/cardboard, light packaging, glass, wood, carpet and the rest) in order to guarantee their correct management and to give priority to the separation of materials and recycling.
The service consists of three distinct phases: assembly, which began on April 15 and will last until May 31; match day, 1 June; and dismantling, which will last a few more weeks.
