How to Plan a Waste-Free Event

  1. Choose reusable plates, utensils, cups and packaging whenever possible.
  2. If it is not possible to use reusable items, choose recyclable or compostable containers or minimally packaged goods instead.
  3. Confirm what can and cannot be recycled or composted and communicate it with everybody involved in the event, including vendors and attendees.
  4. Create “sorting stations” with one recycling bin, one compost container and one trash can at each. This makes it easy for guests to sort their materials properly.
  5. Make sure the recycling and composting options are promoted and clearly marked during the event to encourage proper use of all the containers.
  6. Plan ahead, and if needed, hire pick up services for proper collection and disposal of waste, recycling and food waste.
