Posted on 02 Sep 2020

We’re pleased to (finally) announce some upcoming work opportunities for September. We have the Turf Games, a hybrid event which closes the gap between competitive functional fitness and one dimensional events such as marathons to bring you a social event, centred around team-based workouts. (Don’t worry we’re just providing the waste management!) This takes place 19th – 20th September at Roslyn Park in London. Around the same time (18th – 20th Sep), we have the Battle of Britain Air show. A sp read more...

Throwback Thursday to Reading, thank you staff and upcoming work!

Posted on 27 Aug 2020

For those of you who are DC veterans you will know Dick and Janet, two of DC Site Services’ Directors who were here from the very beginning and established the Company in 1993. Dick and Janet first became involved in the Events & Festival scene back in the 60s, which resulted in them joining Reading festival’s ‘training school’ and have since then, in one way or another been involved with this iconic festival. This festival season will mark the first time in FOURTY SEVEN YEARS that they hav read more...

Throwback Thursday – to Leeds Festival!

Posted on 20 Aug 2020

This is another one that stings a little bit. Leeds and Reading festival have been a staple of DC’s event calendar for many years. These sister festivals are usually the peak of the festival season, our fullest weekend over the August bank holiday. This is usually when our managers are at their busiest, the office staff at their most engaged with phones permanently attached to their ears…so it feels odd to be in a strange limbo. We’ll settle for reminiscing over lovely sunrises, a sea of tents read more...

Throwback Thursday – to Ed Sheeran!

Posted on 06 Aug 2020

Who was there with us last year at Ed Sheeran? From start to finish, DC Site Services was there to provide a full waste management service for an amazing gig which was sandwiched in between a series of other big festivals!   We remember the hill that felt like a mountain that was thoroughly picked. Muddy boots. A LOT of hay and bins and one big stage. A few of our crew were even lucky enough to get a wave from Mr. Sheeran himself during the build. Thank you to everyone who’ve emailed in to sha read more...

Throwback Thursday – to the Royal Welsh Show!

Posted on 23 Jul 2020

Firstly, thank you to everyone who has been in touch with the office to share your memories from last years festivals. It’s put a nostalgic smile on our faces and a spring in our step as we plan for the future. This time, we’re throwing it back to the Royal Welsh Show, the “pinnacle event in the British Agricultural calendar.” DC has provided cleaning and waste management services to RWS for a number of years, and while you may not see your favourite rock band while off-shift, there is plenty e read more...

Throwback Thursday – to Glastonbury!

Posted on 16 Jul 2020

This was a hard one for everyone this year. Glastonbury is a legendary festival, the biggest in Europe, and 2020 would have been its fiftieth anniversary. From the sea of tents, to the temperamental weather, gorgeous sunrises and extortionate but downright delectable food (depending on the vendor!) there is honestly something for absolutely everyone at Glastonbury. Throw into the mix crew catering, working with your mates, the pyramid stage, sights you’d never expect to see and of course the i read more...

Throwback Thursday – to Kew the Music!

Posted on 09 Jul 2020

Kew the Music is a music festival located in the beautiful grounds of Kew Gardens. Appealing to music lovers of all ages, it’s the ideal summer evening outing in spectacular surroundings. So understandably, we’re all disappointed to not be there. DC Site Services is proud to have proved waste management services to Kew the music for a number of years, and though we’re sad to not be there now due to the current circumstances, it’ll make returning in 2021 all the more gratifying! If you happene read more...

So far we’ve caught up with Dan & Summer, Dave & Jane, and last week Ed.

I just wanted to drop you a line to pass on my sincere thanks to Kerry and her team at Harewood at the weekend. As you know I was nervous to get this one right.  I didn’t need to be – they were the most amazing team and completely smashed the litter! When I came back on site on Sunday morning – the site was almost completely clear.  They worked so hard to achieve this and I am really grateful.
