Near Zero Waste Events

It’s easier than you think to make your event “Near Zero Waste.” Here are a few guidelines that will allow you to compost and recycle the vast majority of your “trash.”

You can have this little trash generated from your event too!

     Events generate a lot of waste. You may already recycle the bottles, cans and plastic cups, but there still is a great deal of food-related waste ending up in the landfill. Amazingly, most food waste is fully compostable by a commercial composter in our area and turned into a valuable soil amendment which is used by local landscapers within 90 days. With a little bit of planning, you can arrange so that the entire plate (including cutlery) can be tossed in the compost container when your guests are done enjoying their meal. If you follow these guidelines, you will typically find that you can reduce your landfill waste by 90% or more! To start planning for your near zero waste event in Bay Village, begin by review the two documents available below for download.
