Waste Minimisation

Waste Minimisation

Avoiding waste is a great opportunity to enhance the profile of your event and reduce your impact on the environment.

There are many ways to start your journey towards a zero-waste event, and solutions can include:

  • Diverting food waste and compostable dishes, etc, to a compost service provider.
  • Designing waste out of your event by eliminating single-use and extra packaging at the early planning stage.
  • Consider using reusable items, and solutions such as wash stations on-site.
