Plan - waste & recycling

Council is committed to reducing waste and encourages events to do the same with practices to avoid single-use plastics, improve recycling and reduce post-event litter.

Head to Council’s Sustainable Events webpage or download the waste wise fact sheet ( PDF, 0.51 MB ) to reduce your event’s environmental footprint.

Council’s Sustainability team can be contacted on 1300 69 22 47 for further support.

Bins

Things to consider are the type of waste your event will generate and what type of volume you are expecting.  The bin sizes range from wheelie bins up to 6 metre skip bins. Smaller bins over multiple days may require extra servicing.

For all events, you must provide your guests with an equal amount of general and recycling wheelie bins.  These are supplied as “bin stations”.

Contact Council’s Water and Waste team on 1300 69 22 47 for help on the types of bins you will need and what is available for hire.

Toilets

How many toilets do you need, how often do they need to be cleaned or restocked … just a couple of the questions that the Toilet Facilities at Events fact sheet ( PDF, 0.32 MB ) answers.
