Toward Zero Waste Events

Events can generate a lot of waste, which can be both costly and have a negative impact on the environment.

A Zero Waste Event is any event that works towards minimizing waste generation and maximizing reusing and recycling to achieve the greatest possible waste diversion.

Event organizers have the most influence in minimizing waste at public events. Thoughtful, strategic planning for waste collection at an event will help achieve a toward zero waste goal. Event organizers can also encourage other key stakeholders to participate in waste reduction, composting and recycling.

 

To help plan your Towards Zero Waste event:

  • Book a recycling trailer and bins (for free) Trailer Rental
    (thanks to our regional partners)
  • Contact the Environmental Stewardship Coordinator for more information
