Waste management at an event
What goes into an event must come out - that's how waste is generated. As an event organiser there are a number of simple actions that you can take to reduce the amount of waste generated by your event.
Under Clause 3 of the Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2013, the organiser of a public or private event held in or on a public place must at the time of making application to Council for consent to use that Public Place provide, to the satisfaction of Council, a waste management plan produced for the special event.
You can find more information and tips on waste management, including lists of service providers, in our Waste Reduction at Events guidelines (PDF, 2MB).
