Plan an Event / Recycling at Events

Event organisers should have systems in place to try to and reduce as much waste to landfill as possible throughout the duration of the event. It is becoming increasingly important to run minimise waste events and there are many positive benefits for your event including:

  • Reducing its impact on the environment
  • Making the event attractive to sponsors
  • Help increase environmental awareness
  • Meet increasing community expectation to be seen to be green
  • Create goodwill amongst the team staging the event

The key to creating a minmise waste event is to be able to control the flow of materials entering and being used on site and then trying to either eliminate, reuse, reduce, recycle or compost as much as possible. To achieve this you need to go through a process of thinking about what materials are going to be brought on sites and ensuring there are systems in place to deal with any leftover materials. When it comes to collecting materials try and keep the number of streams practical, have clear prominent signage, never let the containers get too full and provide the appropriate number of bins where they are needed.

One key task is to ensure you have engage with key stakeholders including suppliers, caterers, stall holders, cleaners, recycling and waste companies. Secure their commitment to play their part in making this a minimise waste event.
