Our Daily Waste can help your event get recycling that WILL GET RECYCLED. Most recycling from events is too contaminated to be recycled, so unless it is sorted it is rejected. After more than 50 events Our Daily Waste is the only onsite recycling crew in Canterbury that hand sorts all waste to ensure maximum diversion from Landfill. We also have excellent Health and Safety procedures and records.

Our Daily Waste at Sparks Event

We provide on-site waste management for Canterbury events, markets, and school fairs (please contact us if you are outside this area). Our services include:

  • sorting of all waste streams to ensure maximum diversion rates
  • 240l recycling bin lid hire
  • pre-event consultancy
  • liaison with waste disposal services
  • onsite management, sorting and transportation of waste
  • health and safety policy and requirements
  • litter collection
  • post-event reporting and analysis

Waste disposal can be expensive for events, and we work with management to reduce the waste that comes on site as packaging, channelling the funds spent on disposal into positive marketing initiatives such as reusable cups.
