He said: “We have always supported Pompey financially, as it was the natural thing to do as a company. But this long-term partnership with the new community club fits even more so with our business ethos.

“The fact they are prepared to make such a strong commitment to the new club is a huge boost.”
“TJ Waste & Recycling have long been partners of the club and the have lived through the same highs and lows all Pompey fans have experienced in the past few years.
“Normally these deals are renegotiated on an annual basis, but this agreement gives us an excellent deal which will help Portsmouth FC with its budgeting, as well as providing a top-class service, for the foreseeable future.
He said: “This is a local company showing real commitment to our community club project.
Pompey CEO Mark Catlin believes the three-year contract to become the Blues’ official partner to dispose of and recycle waste from all the club’s facilities, including Fratton Park and the training ground, is very good news.
The company, whose head office is in Wickham, were founded almost 20 years ago and have been loyal sponsors of the club ever since.
Portsmouth Football Club are delighted to announce a long-term partnership deal with Fareham-based TJ Waste & Recycling Ltd.
In the past, TJ Waste & Recycling has also sponsored the club’s academy and been a regular in the corporate lounges.
As part of the deal, TJ Waste & Recycling will receive a sponsorship package including advertising in the club’s matchday programme and the opportunity for fans to link directly with the company’s website through the official site.
“When I set up the company, I ensured the company colours were blue and white for a reason. We want to be a part of the new club’s journey and we hope we will be able to share in their future success.”
“To keep costs down we try to recycle as much as possible. Not only is this environmentally friendly, but it also chimes with the corporate social responsibility the new club clearly wants to demonstrate.
“The community club concept gives that bit more confidence in the future. We have tried to make the deal as simple as possible to give the club best value. In effect, we will deal with all the club’s waste for a very competitive fixed price for the next three years.
A typical League Two match at Fratton Park will generate around eight tonnes of waste, which will be transported to TJ’s waste transfer station at Havant, where it is sorted, processed and recycled. Material that cannot be reused is sent to landfill.
