Ansa puts The Dabbers on ice


29 July, 2016

Ansa Environmental Services recently donated a large commercial waste bin to Nantwich Town Football club. The bin will be used by the Football Club in an unusual way, as an ice bath.

Ansa Chairman, Cllr John Hammond, was contacted by Deputy Mayor of Cheshire East Council, and Nantwich North and North West Ward member, Arthur Moran, regarding the possibility of Ansa supplying a large commercial waste bin to Nantwich Town Football Club.

Cllr John Hammond, accompanied by Ansa senior manager Charlie Griffies, made a visit to the Weaver Stadium for a small tour and to see the Ansa branded bin turned ice bath for themselves. Cllr Hammond explained, ‘When the suggestion was made, I immediately said yes. I thought it was a good way for the company, which is a fairly new company, to get involved in a form of sponsorship with a local progressive club like Nantwich Town. We were dipping our toe in the water so to speak!’

Nantwich Town manager, Phil Parkinson, added, ‘the club was in need of a replacement ice bath, with the old one being used by three to four players at a time. The large bin will be used to aid muscle recovery after a match or a hard training session!’

Ansa provides waste management services, fleet management, parks and grounds maintenance, and street cleansing services for Cheshire East Council and other clients.

The award-winning company is keen to get more involved with the local community and has won national awards such as RoSPA (2015 and 2016) and has won or been nominated for others such as National Recycling Awards, the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE), and the Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management.
