Zero Waste Events

Man, oh man! Events sure do send a lot of waste to the landfill. But they don't have to now that Omaha has a Zero Waste event provider!

 

WHAT'S A ZERO WASTE EVENT? 

Instead of throwing everything in a landfill trash can, we can provide a comprehensive sustainable alternative that includes composting, dual-stream recycling, EnergyBag, and glass recycling. Through these services, we have the capacity to bring your event to Zero Waste.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Pre-Event Audit: Determine what type of waste you'll be producing. 
  • Food vendors: Get them on board to use compostable or recyclable serviceware. 
  • Resource Stations: Set-up stations with totes to collect recycling, EnergyBag, composting, and landfill. 
  • Signage: Correct stickers on each bin purchased from Recycle Across America.
  • Volunteers: Seek and organize volunteers to assist at Resource Stations
  • Measuring: We'll weigh materials onsite and produce a report.
