GLRPPR Sector Resource: Special event recycling
Special event recycling
State and local laws require recycling both at home and away from home. All events and gatherings must provide ways to collect recyclable clean cardboard, aluminum cans and glass or plastic bottles. Such events include fairs, festivals, concerts, sporting competitions, conventions, reunions, weddings and other gatherings outside of the home.
With a little advance planning, event organizers can arrange to collect recyclables, reduce waste, save on disposal costs and even generate income.
Although the toolkit was developed for Wisconsin organizations, much of the content is more broadly useful.
