Waste Management

First published 14th Apr, 2020

The Event Organiser must ensure that there are sufficient bins and skips available for the event.

All waste receptacles, including any skips, must be covered if left unattended to prevent attack by wildlife such as birds and squirrels.

Rubbish bags should not be left out in a park for collection the next day as they will be torn open by wildlife overnight and the contents scattered. The Event Organiser would be charged for any re-cleansing necessary in such a situation.

Please ensure any temporary event signage and banners are taken down before your leave site.

The Event Organiser should ensure that the maximum amount of waste material is recycled.

All mobile catering units shall provide litter bins next to their units which must be emptied at regular intervals during an event.
