Plan your event

Waste management at your event

Environmental sustainability is increasingly important to venue operators, the audience and sponsors, and should be incorporated into your planning.

You will need to submit a waste management plan if your event:

  • has more than 500 people
  • has high waste content such as leaflet material, food stalls, giveaways, large scale catering
  • is¬†in an environmentally or culturally sensitive area.
