Leading the way in recovery and reuse of synthetic sports surfaces

The environmental philosophy of reuse, reduce, recycle is actively adopted by Thornton Sports in all feasible projects. Over recent months used synthetic grass surfaces, removed as part of sports pitch resurfacing projects, have been provided to others for a variety of different uses.

The synthetic grass is recovered in an environmentally friendly manner by firstly removing the sand and/or rubber infill and then it is rolled and packaged for protection during transportation. The surfaces can then be provided to farms, equestrian centres or golf clubs, free of charge, as an extension to their useful life. For example farmers have successfully used synthetic grass to cover floors of sheds for the winter months and also to cover trackways to help keep cows/livestock clean.
 

The recovery and re-use of synthetic surfaces is just one aspect of Thornton Sports’ ISO14001 accredited environmental system, which also includes the use of ground stabilisation to reduce the need for fill materials, and the sourcing of necessary fill materials from demolition waste.

If you are a farm, equestrian centre or golf club that would be interested in utilising a recycled synthetic sports surface please contact us on 01282 777 345 or email info@thorntonsports.co.uk.
