Reflecting the growing understanding of the challenge in designing events that minimise waste and maximise recycling, the Department of Environment and Conservation NSW (DEC) has produced a Waste Wise Events Guide.
Waste Wise Events principles are supported by 87% of the community, who now expect recycling facilities at events. Adopting Waste Wise Event Management strategies makes good economic and environmental sense. A waste wise event benefits councils, the public and the environment by promoting sustainable practices.
DEC's easy to use Waste Wise Events Guide has been developed for councils, other landowners and managers, and event organisers. It sets out the planning of a waste wise event in three stages; before, during and after the event.
The guide features checklists, quick reference tabs, case studies, wise words, illustrated examples, templates and samples. The Guide also provides assistance with evaluating the success of your waste wise event and identifying areas for improvement.
The Guide is available by phoning (02) 8837 6000.
