With the summer season fast approaching, most people are excited to get outside and enjoy the warm weather at the many outdoor events held throughout the summer in the GTA. Whether it’s a food, music, fashion or street festival, there’s nothing like hosting an enjoyable event outdoors that brings people together.
But when the music is turned off, the dancing comes to an end, and the food is all gone, the next major task is clean-up and waste disposal to restore the grounds to their original state. In most scenarios, it’s impossible to keep track of where guests toss out every single piece of trash, therefore its best to implement an effective waste management system for outdoor events. Here are some tips from Mr. Waste to help you manage waste at your outdoor event this summer in Hamilton and the GTA.
Monitor and Control the Items Entering the Venue
One of the most effective ways to minimize waste is to limit what people can bring into the venue. This provides you with a head start in your waste management initiative by creating significantly less trash to dispose of after the event. Additionally, this also protects guests from consuming beverages from unknown sources, thus restricting them to refreshments provided at the event, which you can screen and monitor.
Sort and Organize the Waste
One of the most effective ways to speed up waste disposal after an outdoor event is to implement waste segregation. While you can’t count on every single guest to throw their trash in the appropriate bins, setting up separate bins for food waste, recyclables, and non-recyclables will make it a tad easier to dispose of all the garbage after the event, as most of the similar waste materials will already be grouped together. To encourage waste segregation early on, it also helps to staff designated waste disposal areas, so attendants can direct guests to the right trash bin when disposing of their waste.
Rent a Dumpster Bin from Mr. Waste
With weather conditions, venue set-up, and event security to consider, outdoor events are already almost twice as much stressful and tedious compared to typical indoor events, and you shouldn’t have to add waste disposal on top of that.
