Since October 2012 Our Daily Waste has provided waste prevention and recycling services for over 100 events, keeping sites litter free and hand sorting waste to ensure maximum diversion.

In 2017 we teamed up with the Christchurch City Council for what is now the Composting Food Packaging at Events scheme whereby all food vendors use only compostable packaging which is then processed into compost.

Our Daily Waste

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

Our Daily Wash

Our Daily Wash is a new service for events, where we supply a reusable cup library and hot wash station so attendees can choose ceramic cups (to match their outfits).

They bring them back and we wash and sterilise the cups using a five-step process. For events, this station serves as a great behaviour change initiative that sends the message that you really care and saves you landfill fees.

To book our services or to find out how you can make your event more sustainable please email Sharon McIver [email protected] or go to our contacts page.
