It’s a Home Run for recycling at UVA, with the Glasdon Jubilee™ 29G Trash Can

The University of Virginia (UVA) has recently announced expansion plans to bring Davenport Field at Disharoon Park’, up to major league baseball stadium standards.

The expansion plans, which aim to improve the overall fan experience, will include a new field-level clubhouse with expanded seating for fans, a new area for concessions and merchandise, as well as improvements to the players training facilities*.

The UVA facilities team also needed to ensure that their waste management infrastructure could match the anticipated increase in spectator numbers, so they called upon Glasdon to assist them in managing trash and recycling across the stadium.

The University has a rich history nationwide and was founded by US President Thomas Jefferson in 1819. And the baseball team is no exception to this long line of success. The Virginia Cavaliers’ (NCAA) championship win in 2015 has led them to unveiling plans for the $18 million expansion of their home field**. Not only have they been victorious on the baseball field, but they have also been championing waste management when it comes to trash disposal and recycling.

The new plans for the Davenport field have come with much excitement for the fans of UVA Baseball, as well as a whole host of new Glasdon Jubilee™ 29G trash and recycling containers to improve upon the UVA recycling and waste management policy. The university was recognized in 2015 as a U.S Department of Education Green Ribbon School***, and this investment in the Baseball Field will only develop their reputation further.

On this occasion, UVA selected dual trash and recycling combo bins which have been sited around the Davenport field to form easily accessible waste management stations for their visitors, coaching staff and players. The black body and door of the Glasdon Jubilee bins combined with a choice of banding color options ensure that these trash cans are visible from all areas around the ballpark.

The new bins purchased by UVA, are part of a wider range of outdoor trash cans and outdoor recycling containers offered here at Glasdon. We offer waste receptacles suitable for all environments, available in a large variety of colors, styles, sizes, and capacities. All Glasdon trash cans and recycling containers are also manufactured using high-quality materials, ensuring resistance to the elements as well as vandals with minimal maintenance required.
