Why have a Waste Wise Event?
Waste reduction involves minimising the volume of material that is disposed of in landfills. In addition, it can contribute to environmental sustainability by conserving valuable resources and energy. It is important that people are given the opportunity to reduce waste in all aspects of their lives- at home, at work, while shopping and at festivals.
By becoming a Waste Wise Event you can achieve a range of benefits including:
- More marketing opportunities for your event
- Meeting patrons’ expectations by providing a positive, clean experience at your event where patrons can continue their impressive ‘at home’ recycling practices.
- Access to Waste Wise bin caps and signage
- Access to Sustainability Victoria and BRWMG resources which you can tailor for your event
- Use of the Waste Wise Logo
- Reduced catering costs at permanent venues by minimising the ‘hidden’ cost of disposal
- Promotion of your event
- Reduce litter and clean up costs
