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
