Event waste and recycling guide

Marketing and promotion of the event

Consider Including waste messages in any pre-event publicity e.g. bring your own reusable items. Aim to reduce waste and recycle everything else possible, and call it a waste free event.

To highlight that even small actions can have a big impact, you could include facts like:

  • 1 recycled banana peel can produce enough energy to charge 2 smartphones!
  • Just one caddy full of food waste can generate enough electricity to power a fridge for 18 hours!

During the event, proactively communicate waste messages through announcements and social media to participants.
