Greening your event

Services booked less than 2 weeks prior to event start may not be processed in time for delivery of equipment, service, or both.

Planning an outdoor event on Vancouver streets or in parks?

Our Green Event Planning Guide is your essential resource for:

  • Organizing an eco-friendly event
  • Offering valuable advice
  • Comprehensive checklists
  • Informative sheets for vendors, volunteers, and event organizers

Within this guide, you'll discover details about local suppliers and service providers, as well as insights into the various services and equipment we offer to support your event's sustainability goals.

Event organizers are responsible for leaving the event area clean and litter-free. If waste is left in the area, the organizer will be charged for City cleanup services. Do not use existing waste and recycling bins on City or Parks property.
