Work Request for Events

In order for Recycling and Refuse to help reduce waste at your event, we need to know:

  • how many bins you need based on the anticipated number of participants
  • if you are serving food (compost will be necessary)
  • the scale of the event
  • where you would like the bins placed
  • what day you are ready for pickup
  • where the bins are located for pickup


Having green and sustainable events will help us reach our goal of 80% of waste recycled; read up on the Green Event Guide [PDF] to learn more.
