More than three hundred trucks will drive back and forth from Wednesday to remove large mountains of infill from synthetic turf fields from the TUF site in Dongen. In total, ten thousand tons of sand and rubber (infill) will be driven away. The synthetic turf carpets will not removed until later. Recycling company Advanced Sports Installations Rotterdam, a subsidairy of Advanced Sports Installations Europe from Estonia, has been commissioned by TUF to clear the site.
The first trucks will leave at seven in the morning. If everything goes well, one after the other will leave with kilos of sand and rubber from the company on the industrial site Tichelrijt. It is not yet possible to say exactly how long the removal will take, according to a spokesperson for the municipality of Dongen. “We can not attach a time forecast to this. But it is a matter of as short as possible. We are not talking about months here.”
