Apply for City waste service

We can provide recycling and waste totes for your event as well as equipment such as water stations and bike racks.

Help the environment and your budget

Keep your costs down by:

  • Assigning at least two volunteers to monitor recycling stations and help attendees sort waste into appropriate streams to avoid contamination
  • Use way finding signage to identify where recycling stations are located
  • Use imagery on signs at recycling stations that show what items go into which stream

We collect recyclables and food scraps from your event the same way we do from houses and duplexes.

Estimate your costs

We suggest one recycling station per 500 people and one per food preparation station. Recycling stations have four bins: food scraps, container recycling, paper recycling, and garbage.  

Prices do not include tax or 15% administrative fee per event.
