GLRPPR Sector Resource: A Green Guide for Waste Management and Recycling During Special Events at National Capital Region Parks

Title:
A Green Guide for Waste Management and Recycling During Special Events at National Capital Region Parks

Abstract:
NPS and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed this guide to help private event organizers and park managers successfully plan waste reduction and recycling programs for special events held at national parks. The guide walks you through each step, beginning with pre-event planning, moving on to day-of-event tips, and concluding with post-event evaluation. Following these guidelines, you can make your next event more environmentally friendly, ultimately helping preserve the beauty and sustainability of the nation's park system.
