Reduce waste at your events

Conferences, fetes and birthday parties often use a lot of single-use plastic and generate large volumes of waste.

Download our guide to find out about options and tools that can help you to reduce waste at your event.

If you are hosting an event, try to reduce as much recycling and waste as possible, and for any additional material, you can use the blue household bins from the event organisers. If there is additional volume required, our trade waste service can offer as many recycling and general waste bins as you require. You can contact them at to discuss quantities and timing. The price is £60 per 1,100-litre bin which includes the delivery, recovery, and disposal costs. All food waste from events can go in household green bins if wrapped in newspaper or paper liners.
