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.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
