In April 2013, ATG consolidated its waste contracts to be run under one company; First Mile, a carbon neutral company. A new zero to landfill waste service, First Mile offer increased recycling levels with our London venues now achieving 99% recycling rates and 1% waste to energy. Hazardous waste such as batteries, light bulbs and e-waste is managed and disposed of responsibly. Food waste collection services were rolled out across London venues in 2014, with Regional venues beginning to role this service out during 2015, significantly increasing recycling levels further.

As a customer of First Mile we support their chosen charity Small Steps, who work to help children and their families who currently live and work on landfill sites around the world, providing them with shoes, medication and a chance to go to school.

In 2010, ATG was awarded a Silver National Recycling Stars Award, and following the successful implementation of the new waste contract in 2013 we received a Gold National Recycling Stars Award. ATG was also a shortlisted finalised in the National Recycling Awards 2015.
