We at www.sitr.com like to look at all the waste policies set up when big events are organised and there are not many bigger than the Commonwealth games in Glasgow.
Like we do, they took waste seriously and produced a “Procurement Sustainability Policy” document that was sent out to all suppliers.
It is a pretty long document, but on packaging for example….
“Suppliers and subcontractors shall support the OC in adopting Zero Waste principles, helping deliver the commitment to stage a Games where all waste sent directly to landfill is minimised either through design or recycling processes. Where practicable, all products should be able to be reused, recycled or recovered.”
If you are organising an event, perhaps a Festival or a market and need guidance on how to set up the waste management strategy contact www.sitr.com for an initial FREE consultation.
