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

Prices do not include tax.
