The Rec Trust treats environmental issues as a key part of managing the site.  All waste that can be recycled is, and a significant part of the power for the Pavilion comes from a solar panel installation funded by Somerset County Council's Climate Emergency Fund and the Rec hosts a monthly recycling bank organised by Green Steps.  Recent initiatives include planting additional trees and bushes, and over 4000 spring bulbs.
