Town and IBC Launch Recycling Scheme
Wednesday, 18th Mar 2020 08:00
Today is Global Recycling Day and Town have linked up with Ipswich Borough Council to launch a new scheme, Think Smart, Think Blue, Recycle, which will see the Blues’ badge appear on recycle lorries and banners around town and in sports centres, museums, car parks and parks.
Global Recycling Day emphasises the importance of recycling as the cornerstone of the ongoing fight against climate change.
Town have produced a video featuring players from both the men’s and women’s teams highlighting some of the worrying facts which have led to the instigation of Global Recycling Day and how people can help.
“Of course the focus at the moment is combating the coronavirus but climate change is an issue that we are increasingly becoming aware of and the impact it’s having on the environment,” general manager of football operations Lee O’Neill told the club site.
“Recycling is a major weapon against climate change and hopefully, working alongside Ipswich Borough Council, we can help drum home that message that we can all play a part in helping the planet.”
Wheelie bin stickers carrying the Think Smart, Think Blue, Recycle message will be available at East of England Co-op stores and Planet Blue store in due course.
Full details of can and can’t be recycled can be found via recycle.itfc.co.uk.

The summer of 1974 had been an anxious period for Town fans. Will he or won’t he leave us? That question hung over us as uncertainty grew about Bobby Robson’s future. Don Revie had left Leeds to take up the England job and Bobby was seen as his likely successor.
And Along Came Jim by Moggasknockdown
Life without football is a funny old thing. Currently, in these most testing of times, the idea of missing football might seem like a triviality, an inconsequential itch amidst an existential crisis. Many of us miss the routine of it, the communality and regularity of it.
City Floored by Brilliant Viljoen by clivebleedingthomas
My father, Owen Sturley Nunn, known as 'Bob' to his many friends at Portman Road, kept an archive of newspaper reports of notable Town matches. I inherited the archive upon his death in 1987 and continued to keep reports of noteworthy games.
The Way Back From Here Will Be Long, But There is a Way by SomethingBlue
It's a delicate situation now, perhaps an existential one. People need to stay engaged, focused and angry – which I know isn't easy to do given the endless stream of kicks in the teeth. But articulated vocally and consistently – which hasn't ever happened yet – it will have an effect in time.
Scapegoats by bbg
A lot of blame gets thrown about on this site and on other media with owner, manager and players on the receiving end. I haven't seen too many posts where supporters have taken the blame for the current predicament, because you had a massive role in it.
