How do we manage and minimise our event waste?

Events can generate a lot of waste and recycling in a short period of time. A good event waste minimisation plan is a great way to reduce the waste generated in the first place and also to maximise the diversion from landfill.

Beyond the Bin, a Tauranga company, received funding from the Ministry for the Environment to develop a series of videos to help event organisers learn more about event waste minimisation. The videos can be viewed on the Beyond the Bin website.

All events in Hamilton that are going to have over 1000 attendees must develop a waste management plan.  Have a look at our Event Waste Management Guide for some handy tips and suggestions.

If you are holding an event in Hamilton check to see if you need a permit on the Hamilton City Council website.
