Leed Festival 2018 – Before & After the Ryans Cleaning clean up!

Before:

The aftermath of Leeds festival. The waste is just ridiculous… :( Luckily hundreds of volunteers from amazing charities were invited on site to salvage something from this throwaway culture. Unfortunately, more than 90% of the tents we came across were trashed/slashed/burnt.

Ryans Cleaning’s biggest challenge in 30 years!

The Papal Visit last weekend combined with a whole programme of other events was the biggest challenge ever faced by Thurles based event cleaning company Ryans Cleaning. Ryans Cleaning were engaged to clean Phoenix Park and Knock elements of the visit the weekend. They did this in addition to maintaining their regular contract work at Croke Park, The Bord Gais Energy Theatre, The Gaiety Theatre, The Olympia Theatre as well as the Carl Cox Show at Ballinlough Castle, The Dualla Show and a horse-racing fixture at The Curragh Racecourse. Furthermore, the family-run firm were actively cleaning in the UK at two major gigs, Leeds Festival and Creamfields Festival. The County Tipperary firm serviced approximately 800,000 patrons across all venues this weekend a massive achievement for this homegrown firm.

Ryans Cleaning have European ISO Standards of cleaning in place at all venues they service and the company is committed to the ‘Vision 20:20 Zero Waste to Landfill’ aim for all events across Ireland and the UK.

At Phoenix Park this Sunday, Ryans Cleaning handed out free family refuse bags to encourage attendees to gather and store their waste in these before depositing in one of their many nearby general waste bins throughout the day. The initiative worked extremely well and many international media representatives commented on just how efficiently the clean up was conducted in their reports of the event.

The bins have since been removed from the park to a Recycling Plant at Ballymount where all rubbish is being segmented over a murph in an effort to separate all mixed dry recyclables from other waste items. So far their ‘Zero Waste to Landfill’ target for the World Meeting of Families is on track as the final stages of separation are being completed.

The company’s ‘zero waste to landfill’ target is very much in line with Pope Francis’ strong stance on the power behind humans working together to have a positive impact on our environment, earlier this year he tweeted “We must never forget that the natural environment is a collective good, the patrimony of all humanity and the responsibility of everyone.”

Pat Ryan, CEO of the family-run firm commented that “It was a tweet by Pope Francis himself that inspired us to think outside the box and introduce the family refuse bag for this event to engage the patrons in the clean-up operation and give them the means required to put the environmental responsibility in the hands of all individuals. This certainly helped us to complete the clean to our usual superior standard even quicker than normal, restoring the park to its natural state in record time.”

In addition to this initiative Ryans Cleaning had over 200 operatives, 30 supervisors plus a specialist back of house janitorial team on-site at Phoenix Park. Pat Ryan commented “The crowds were far less than expected and that had a bearing also, it was such a pity the weather was so poor as I have no doubt that put a lot of people off travelling. The crowd was very tidy and the atmosphere was a pleasure for the team and I to work in. I personally oversaw all aspects of the planning around this project myself and was onsite at Croke Park on Saturday and The Phoenix Park on Sunday to ensure this major milestone for our company was achieved seamlessly, which I’m proud to report was no problem thanks to the great staff and supervisory team we have at Ryans Cleaning.”

Tipperary based company to clean Europe’s biggest event of 2018 this weekend

 

The Papal Visit this weekend is set to be Europe’s biggest event of 2018 and it is the biggest event ever cleaned by Thurles based event cleaning company Ryans Cleaning. Ryans Cleaning have been engaged to clean the Phoenix Park and Knock elements of the Papal Visit this weekend. They will do this in addition to maintaining their regular contract work at Croke Park, The Bord Gais Energy Theatre, The Gaiety Theatre, The Olympia Theatre as well as the Carl Cox Show at Ballinlough Castle and a horse-racing fixture at The Curragh Racecourse here in Ireland. Furthermore, the family-run firm will also be actively cleaning in the UK at two major gigs, Leeds Festival and Creamfields Festival bringing the total expected attendance that they will service this weekend to 1.2 million patrons.

Ryans Cleaning have European ISO Standards of cleaning in place at all venues they service and the company is committed to the ‘Vision 20:20 Zero Waste to Landfill’ aim for all events across Ireland and the UK.

At Phoenix Park this Sunday, Ryans Cleaning will be handing out free family refuse bags to encourage attendees to gather and store their waste in these before depositing in one of their many nearby general waste bins throughout the day.

These bins will be removed from the park during and after the event to a nearby waste facility where all rubbish will be segmented over a murph in an effort to separate all mixed dry recyclables from other waste items.

With the help of those in attendance, every effort will be made by Ryans Cleaning and the team at Phoenix Park to restore the park to its natural state as quickly as possible post event. Their ‘Zero Waste to Landfill’ target for the World Meeting of Families is very much in line with Pope Francis’ strong stance on the power behind humans working together to have a positive impact on our environment, earlier this year he tweeted “We must never forget that the natural environment is a collective good, the patrimony of all humanity and the responsibility of everyone.”

Pat Ryan, CEO of the family-run firm commented that “It was a tweet by Pope Francis himself that inspired us to think outside the box and introduce the family refuse bag for this event to engage the patrons in the clean-up operation and give them the means required to put the environmental responsibility in the hands of all individuals. We hope that this will enable us to complete the clean to our usual superior standard even quicker than normal, restoring the park to its natural state in record time.”

In addition to this initiative, Ryans Cleaning will have over 200 operatives, 30 supervisors plus a specialist back of house janitorial team on-site at Phoenix Park. Pat Ryan commented “We are very satisfied that although this is the biggest event expected to take place in Europe this year we have it well covered, afterall this is what we do week in week out, nationally and internationally. I have personally overseen all aspects of the planning around this project myself and will be onsite at Croke Park on Saturday and The Phoenix Park on Sunday to ensure this major milestone for our company is achieved seamlessly.”

Event Clean Fact Sheet

Venue: Phoenix Park

Event: World Meeting of Families’ Papal Visit

Date: Sunday, 26th of August

 

  • Ryans Cleaning have been cleaning within the events industry here at home and in the UK for over 30 years, they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to this event from a cleaning perspective.
  • Although this will be the largest event Ryans have ever cleaned they are drawing on years of experience at other extremely well-attended events, for example, the Olympics, BT Live 2012, The Ryder Cup 2006, Electric Picnic, The Irish Open, Tall Ships 2012 and the 2003 Special Olympics to mention but a few.
  • The type of clean required to return Phoenix Park back to its natural state, is similar to Ryans Cleaning’s experience at similar ‘green field gigs’ they service in Ireland and Internationally; most notable comparatives include British Summer Time Event in Hyde Park London where 60,000 concert goers attend the concert each of the 6 consecutive nights. As these are back to back the clean-up team must ensure that the venue is ready for the following morning, which is where the Ryans Cleaning ‘Night Fairies’ come into their own. Other comparatives include the Creamfields Music Festival in Daresbury with a daily attendance of 70,000 and The National Ploughing Championships with an average daily attendance of 94,500.
  • The demographics of those who are expected to attend as suggested by event organisers at the many EMP meetings Ryans Cleaning have been at thus far suggests the type of clean will be similar to that which Ryans Cleaning would expect at an All-Ireland Final at Croke Park (where they are the resident cleaning contractors), when two teams meet from the far corners of the country. As one can imagine this involves an early start and a long day for families so packed lunches, snacks, minerals both bottles and cans, cardboard and plastic wrappers as well as tea and coffee paraphernalia including used tea bags, small cartons of milk, sugar sachets, plastic and wooden spoons and paper and polystyrene cups are all par for the course at this sort of event. Albeit it on a much greater scale than the example given, the cleaning operations and attention to quality and detail will be exceptional as standard with Ryans Cleaning.
  • Attendees at the event will receive a FREE family refuse bag on arrival at Phoenix Park courtesy of Ryans Cleaning to encourage families to do their bit to keep the site clean and help to protect the park from unnecessary rubbish, thus helping the speed at which Ryans Cleaning can return the site to its natural state post-event. 
  • The Phoenix Park cleaning spec for this event includes all areas inside the park boundary, the entrance gates, search areas, media centre, back of house areas, the internal road network in the park, the arena clean itself as well as all bus and car parking areas.
  • Ryans Cleaning will be on site at Phoenix Park for a pre-clean for 12 days in advance of the World Meetings of Families’ Papal Visit.
  • The priority for the team at Ryans Cleaning is to return the park to its natural state as quickly as possible, however, care for the park and the quality of this clean will not be jeopardised in haste, Ryans Cleaning are well used to this type of cleaning requirement and it will be managed with military precision to realise this common goal.
  • To ensure the efficiency of the clean in relation to care for the park and the speed of the clean required, Ryans Cleaning will be enlisting a higher volume of employees than what is standard operations for return to ‘green field’ for this unique event.
  • Ryans Cleaning will have numerous teams in place pre-event, teams on a continuous clean basis throughout the event picking litter and emptying bins etc. consisting of general operatives and supervisors as well as a specialised team of janitors operating behind the scenes for the back of house requirements.
  • The recycling target for this event is to see “Zero Waste to Landfill” and that is the case at all events Ryans Cleaning service, in accordance with the Zero Waste Events 20:20 Roadmap.
  • Ryans Cleaning have a “Zero Waste to Landfill” policy as standard at Croke Park (and across most events where possible) where they are resident contractors and a case study on this is available to the media on request, contact details below.
  • From an environmental perspective, every effort will be made to make this event a green and sustainable one, the site will include both general and recycling bins throughout the park. All free family refuse bags issued will be collected and gathered along with Ryans Cleaning teams’ litter picking efforts and sent off-site for segregation over a murph at a waste facility nearby.
  • The Phoenix Park access network of roads and pathways will reopen on Monday at 4pm so essentially that is the deadline to which Ryans Cleaning will be operating, that said Ryans Cleaning always like to air on the side of caution and apply their own internal deadlines for all aspects of the clean so that they can meet any venues requirements with ease.
  • The wildlife in the park will naturally populate the green field site in which the event is being held post-event and based on the efforts of Ryans Cleaning, all suppliers and Park Officials we are confident that the natural residents of Phoenix Park will be grazing and going about their usual business happily and safely post-event.
  • Over the weekend of the Papal Visit, Ryans Cleaning will have teams at all three sites not just Phoenix Park, they will also be cleaning at Knock Shrine and Airport, Croke Park WMOF, Carl Cox in Ballinlough Castle, Creamfields Festival, Leeds Festival, The Curragh Racecourse, The Bord Gais Energy Theatre, The Gaiety Theatre and The Olympia Theatre.
  • The total expected attendances at the events Ryans Cleaning will be servicing during the Papal Visit is 1.2 million people.

Ryans Cleaning to conduct industry survey at the Easter Festival at Fairyhouse Racecourse this weekend!

2017 winner of the Ryans Cleaning Event Specialist race at Fairyhouse Samcro

The second of four planned racecourse cleaning surveys is set to take place this weekend at the Grand National Meeting at Fairyhouse Racecourse. The survey will be included within the racecard for patrons to complete and a VIP Hospitality Prize for two at Fairyhouse Racecourse will be on offer to one lucky participant.

The purpose of this short survey is to assess the quality of the cleaning service offered by Ryans Cleaning and to gain a better understanding of the attitudes and opinions of attendees in relation to event cleaning, sustainability and compliance standards.

Pat Ryan, Chief Executive of Ryans Cleaning commented “We have been Ireland’s leading cleaning event specialists for over 30 years yet we are not afraid to learn and move with the times, I guess that’s what has kept us at the top of our game all those years. We have purposefully chosen this meeting as it is one of the busiest meetings on the Irish racing calendar and we want to put our service to the test. It would be easy to pick a quiet day somewhere and tick the box but that is not how we do business and we encourage patrons to engage with the survey to help us and Fairyhouse in our joint effort to continue to raise the bar for attendees comfort and enjoyment.”

The first survey took place in Punchestown at their busy Winter Festival meeting in November and there are two more planned for later in the year. On conclusion, the final results will be published and industry standards will be benchmarked as part of the overall strategy for continued development by Ryans Cleaning.

Ryans Cleaning are also proudly sponsoring the opening race of the Easter Festival at Fairyhouse Racecourse on Sunday, The Ryans Cleaning Event Specialist Maiden Hurdle which will be shown as a replay on RTÉ Racing on Sunday, April 1st. The winner of the race they sponsored at the meeting last year was the mighty Samcro for Gigginstown and Gordon Elliott who enjoyed recent success at the Cheltenham Festival so perhaps this year’s race will find Ireland’s next big hurdling superstar!

Ryans Cleaning fundraising donation to Limerick Neonatal Unit Fund

ryans-cleaning-neo-presentation-small

Margo Dunworth, Clinical Maternity Manager at the Regional Maternity Hospital, receiving a cheque for €2,000 from Caitlin Fahey, her father Roderick Fahey and her mother Catriona Fahey representing Ryans Cleaning, Thurles. Every year the team at Ryans Cleaning choose a charity to raise funds for and in 2017 the Limerick Neonatal Unit Fund was selected. The Limerick Neonatal Unit at the Regional Maternity Hospital has 19 cots providing Intensive Neonatal Care, High Dependency Care and Special Care for approximately 1,000 babies per year. This charity is very close to the hearts of all at Ryans Cleaning as they have witnessed the great work they do first-hand.

On the 18th June 2015, Catriona Fahey, Senior Accountant at Ryans Cleaning went into pre-term labour at just 30 weeks, needless to say, this was a really worrying time for Catriona, her family and colleagues. On delivery, baby Caitlin weighing just 3 pounds 2 ounces was immediately rushed to Neonatal Intensive Care at Regional Maternity Hospital. The team at the Limerick Neonatal Unit worked tirelessly on little Caitlin to help her tiny lungs and premature body to strengthen and develop in the hope of giving her every chance of survival.

It is without a doubt that, the care and attention Caitlin received was world class. The nurturing that little Caitlin received from everyone who nursed her was truly remarkable. Thankfully she responded with courage and determination and after 58 days in the Limerick Neonatal Unit Caitlin was discharged and went home with her mum and dad and hasn’t looked back since.

Speaking of the charity Catriona commented “Apart from the amazing medical and practical work they did on Caitlin, there are without a doubt so many other actions we are grateful to the Limerick Neonatal Unit for. Simple things spring to mind, like the many nights a kind nurse put the kettle on when we were wilting before her eyes or made up a bed so one of us could spend the night with our little girl when things were at a critical stage, my husband and I will be eternally grateful for the kindness and support we received along the way. We would like to take this opportunity to thank my colleagues and the management at Ryans Cleaning for their unwavering support during that difficult time. Now with this donation as a result of our fundraising efforts, we are just so proud to be able to say thank you and make a real difference to other families by supporting this great charity. Thanks to everyone who donated along the way, it means more than you will ever know.”

In honour of this gorgeous little girl and the support she received in those early weeks of life, the team at Ryans Cleaning ran various fundraising campaigns throughout 2017 and raised a total of €2,000 for the Limerick Neonatal Unit Fund.

Ryans Cleaning shortlisted for the 2018 Facilities Management Awards as part of Croke Park’s In-House Facilities Management Team

croke-park

Thurles Company, Ryans Cleaning have been shortlisted for the 2018 Facilities Management Awards as part of Croke Park’s In-House Facilities Management Team. The awards will take place on Wednesday, 31st of January at The Ballsbridge Hotel and the Ryan Family who own and run the progressive cleaning business, couldn’t be more proud of reaching this stage of such a prestigious national competition.

Ryans Cleaning have a stronghold in the events and entertainment industry across Ireland and the UK. The National Ploughing Championships, V Festival, Electric Picnic and the Epsom Debry are just some of the festival type events they cover annually along with major facilities contracts with top venues like the Premier League Club Watford FC’s Stadium at Vicarage Road, The 3 Arena, Croke Park and top visitor attraction Dublin Zoo.

This family-run business prides itself on the personal touch which ensures a quality service every time they clean, offering a peace of mind that clients have grown to rely on. They work with venues and become part of their in-house facilities management team to ensure smooth operations and optimum sustainability at all venues.

CEO Pat Ryan said “Although we are just one small part of what can only be described as a superb in-house facilities management team at Croke Park, we are thrilled to be shortlisted for this award. To be shortlisted at this level and have the quality of work recognised among your peers nationally is a great honour. This really means so much to the team who work tirelessly at the venue to ensure operations run smoothly day in and day out so that the public can have an enjoyable experience every time they visit the facility, this award is for the team on the ground and that’s what makes it extra special.”

Croke Park, the third largest stadium in Europe is both the principal stadium and headquarters of the Gaelic Athletics Association and as a non-sporting venue, it is a world class amphitheatre for meetings, conferences, exhibitions and concerts. The venue is over 5,000 square meters and with a varied calendar of events, the team at Ryans Cleaning provide a regular and vitally important function as part of the greater in-house team that makes Croke Park the national treasure that it is.

Ryans Cleaning highlights from a spotless 2017

before-after-bbc-radio-1s-big-weekend

Ryans Cleaning, a Tipperary based firm have had one hell of a year keeping some of Ireland and the UK’s top events clean and green! The firm which has recently been shortlisted for no less than two Green Awards has had an eventful year and would like to thank their team, clients and suppliers for their support. Here is a selection of Ryans Cleaning highlights from throughout 2017.

January

Ryans Cleaning were shortlisted by the Small Firms Association for a National Small Business Award. January blues were kept at bay with shows like Big The Musical, La Cage Aux Folles and West Side Story at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and rock band Black Sabbath taking to the stage at the 3 Arena. Horse racing also stepped up a gear at the many racecourses Ryans Cleaning serviced as the build-up to Cheltenham really built momentum.

February

FTMTA Farm Machinery Show 2017 took place in early February and was their largest and most successful event so far with a total of nearly 21,000 visitors to the show over the three days. The 3 Arena ensured there was something for everyone in February with Cirque Du Soleil, Billy Connolly, Drake, Jack Whitehall and Strauss Festival Vienna Orchestra. While the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre also offered a varied programme which included Hamlet, Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story, Million Dollar Quartet and music from The Divine Comedy.

March

Elaine Ryan was announced as Managing Director for Ireland and the UK. Elaine has been with the company since 2009 when she started as Financial Controller, quickly establishing an active role within the company, she was promoted to General Manager for Ireland in 2012. During this time Elaine helped to grow the company turnover from €3.3m in 2009 to €6.1m in 2016.

April

National Hunt Racing Festivals at Fairyhouse and Punchestown took place in April. Punchestown enjoyed an all-time record-breaking crowd where Ryans cleaned up after 122,557 patrons over the five-day event.

May

BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Hull was a massive affair with acts like Little Mix, Katy Perry, Stormzy and Kasabian to mention but a few of the big names who entertained the massive crowds in attendance. Meanwhile, Ryans Cleaning also had a team in the North of Ireland cleaning at the annual Balmoral Show in Belfast.

June

Festival season hit with a bang as Ryans Cleaning rallied the troops for Forbidden Fruit, Body & Soul, Download, Parklife and British Summer Time music festivals.

July

The Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Portstewart saw the start of a busy July and then it was full steam ahead as the team ploughed through 15,000 refuse sacks and 7,000 wheelie bins to keep the venue clean for over 150,000 patrons at the Galway Races Summer Festival. Ryans Cleaning, Event Supervisor, Sinead Cleary clocked up a whopping 89 miles on her pedometer during the festival! Other members of the team helped The Body Coach smash the Guinness World Record for the largest HIIT Class while cleaning the venue at Hyde Park on July 5th in 29 degree heat. Then it was on to Latitude Festival at Henham Park for more festival cleaning. The real treat this month had to be U2 playing at Croke Park as part of The Joshua Tree Tour.

August

The festival frenzy continued with the Lytham Festival, the largest music event in Lancashire overlapping with the Wilderness Festival at Cornbury Park. This meant Ryans Cleaning had to divide and conquer that weekend. Then the V Festival was followed in quick succession by the Creamfields and Leeds Festivals. August was rounded off by a local agricultural event, the Dualla Show.

September

September landed with a bang as Electric Picnic took place at the start of the month which was followed by the National Ploughing Championships at Screggan, Tullamore which was an 800 acre site for the Ryans Cleaning team to clean. In fact, the National Ploughing Championships is the largest outdoor event in all of Europe. We also cleaned up at the exciting All-Ireland Finals at Croke Park which saw zero waste to landfill, a real achievement and the aim for all events going forward in accordance with the 20:20 Vision for Events.

October

Miss Saigon captivated audiences for a whopping six weeks at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and was a real treat for our team on the ground up there. Also in October, Ryans Cleaning began their inaugural Premiership Stadium Cleaning Contract for Watford FC at Vicarage Road. The Watford V Arsenal game on October 14th was a real milestone for Ryans Cleaning in the UK marketplace.

November

Our team enjoyed Queen and Adam Lambert play top hits to a sold-out crowd at the 3 Arena, one of the perks of the job for sure. Punchestown’s Winter Racing Festival included a race sponsorship by Ryans Cleaning and a great day was enjoyed by all in attendance as the first of the big jump racing kicked off for the season. Ryans Cleaning were also appointed new cleaning contractors at The Olympia and The Gaiety theatres.

December

Ryans Cleaning took on a new project at Dublin Zoo cleaning during their new attraction, the Wild Lights Festival which proved extremely popular on many a crisp evening throughout December. Our UK team kept Winterville at Clapham Common spotless throughout the entire event while our Irish teams cleaned Leopardstown, Limerick and Punchestown Racecourses and a long stint at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre as The Sound of Music was their big Christmas show in December.

Ryans Cleaning Fairies keep Wild Lights sparkling at Dublin Zoo

picture-1-small

Event cleaning firm Ryans Cleaning have been set a whole new challenge by the team at Dublin Zoo. As well as their usual role keeping the Zoo spick and span by day, they are now tasked with the job of cleaning the Zoo at night as ‘Wild Lights’ runs from now until Sunday, 7th of January 2018.

Wild Lights is a must-see experience at Dublin Zoo where visitors will embark on an enchanted trail to discover a dazzling array of beautifully crafted, giant colourful lanterns inspired by wildlife.

Ryans Cleaning has been contracted to Dublin Zoo for over 16 years and cleaning it by night is a first for the team but one they are really enjoying.

Aoife Keegan Twomey, Senior Events Executive, Dublin Zoo “The crew from Ryans Cleaning are performing extremely well at Wild Lights, they are going above and beyond the call of duty.”

Elaine Ryan, MD Ryans Cleaning commented “It’s going really well and we couldn’t be more pleased with our cleaning team who are working at Dublin Zoo and doing a terrific job. A dedicated team has been selected to work at Wild Lights and we affectionately refer to them as the ‘Cleaning Fairies’.

For over 30 years we have been cleaning at venues and events at home and in the UK from agricultural shows to rock festivals and when the entertainment ends often under a night’s sky, our work begins as usually the venue must be turned around for the next day of the show, festival or gig. So this crew of Cleaning Fairies is extremely familiar with the complexities of cleaning when dark.

On any given night of Wild Lights, the Ryans Cleaning Fairies keep the venue spotless so visitors can enjoy the venue and Wild Lights in all its glory.
