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

Help the environment and your budget

Keep your costs down by helping event guests sort their waste properly.

  • Assign at least two staff or volunteers per recycling station.
  • Use signage and event communications.

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, at the busiest hour, and per food preparation station. Recycling stations have four bins: one for garbage, food scraps, container recycling, and paper reycling.

Prices do not include tax.
