Viridor supports Taunton Town FC

As proud sponsors of our local football team, Taunton Town FC, we funded the resoration of their clubhouse and stadium following a large fire in 2011. The stadium has now been named the Viridor Stadium.

"It's great that we are able to sponser the local football team and help them in their on-going transformation. To help continue to make the club a special place for visitors, we encourage all the players, fans and supporters to use the new bins and help them reduce waste and recycle more. The enthusiasm and passion for the game is immense at the club and we wish them every success in the league."

Jayne Shawcross, Marketing Manager for Viridor
