Zero Waste Events
Planning a school fair, Christmas market or music festival? Find out how to make your event zero waste.
We all love those summer events - but they can generate a lot of waste! With a bit of planning, you'll be surprised how easy it is to reduce waste at your next event.
We've compiled some info for you so you can swot up on how to reduce waste at your next event:
- Guide: Reducing waste at your event - An organiser's guide to help you understand best practice waste minimisation, reduce the amount of waste produced at your event, recycle and reuse more, and send less material to landfill.
- Event Packaging Guidelines - Most of the waste at events comes from selling food and drinks. Choosing reusable, compostable or recyclable packaging and serviceware is key to reducing waste.
- Videos: How to run a Zero Waste Event - Information for event organisers as well as short clips to brief your stallholders and staff or volunteers.
We're always happy to discuss your plans for reducing waste at your next event, so for further advice please contact email@example.com.
Bin hoods available
Kāpiti Coast District Council has three sets of bin hoods that are free to borrow. The hoods fit over 240L wheelie-bins to create simple and effective waste stations.
Public litter bin covers to cover fixed street bins during your event are also available.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book the bin hoods or litter bin covers.
Please note that we do not have wheelie bins available for hire. If you need wheelie bins for your event please contact one the district's rubbish and recycling collectors.
See the bin hoods in action at the 'Food Truck Event' Paraparaumu in August 2016. This is the fourth video in the series of Ākina Te Reo - Give Te Reo Māori a go!
