How to Organise Waste Collection for a Successful Outdoor Event

There is a lot that goes into hosting an event, and one important task is organising waste management. Regardless of the type of event that you are hosting, there’s sure to be a lot of rubbish that needs collecting. At Cornwall Waste Care, we understand the importance of keeping your event clean, so here are our tips for organising waste collection for a successful outdoor event.

Tips for Organising Outdoor Event Waste Collection

  • Try and Plan Ahead - When it comes to organising waste collection for an outdoor event, the key is to plan ahead. Start by thinking about the size and nature of the event, and the type of waste that it’s likely to generate. Consider factors such as the number of attendees, the duration of the event and types of activities happening. This will help you to calculate roughly how much waste you will have, and how much waste collection will be needed.

  • Promote Waste Disposal to Attendees - It’s a good idea to promote responsible waste disposal to event attendees by providing clear instructions on how to properly dispose of their rubbish. You could use signage, announcements or volunteer staff to encourage attendees to dispose of everything correctly, and to encourage them to minimise waste by using reusable containers and avoiding single use plastics.

  • Coordinate with Venue Staff - Before the event, communicate with the staff at your chosen venue to coordinate your waste collection logistics. Identify designated waste disposal areas and ensure that enough bins are available and that these are placed at strategic locations throughout the event. It’s always a good idea to clearly label bins for different types of waste, such as general waste and recycling, to ensure an efficient waste collection process. This will speed up cleaning up.

  • Monitor and Adjust Your Efforts - Monitor your waste disposal efforts throughout the event and, if necessary, change collection schedules or relocate bins to high-traffic areas. After the event, assess the effectiveness of your waste management efforts and identify areas for improvement. If you organise other outdoor events in the future, you can use this information to ensure your waste collection efforts are perfect.

  • Choose the Right Waste Collection Team - At Cornwall Waste Care, we offer both one-off and recurring waste collection services, both of which are tailored to suit the needs of your event. Our one-off service is perfect for clearing waste after an event, ensuring that you’re leaving a clean and tidy venue behind. Alternatively, with our recurring service, we can provide ongoing waste collection throughout the event, ensuring that waste disposal is kept on top of.
