If you are planning a large public event, you will no doubt need to deal with a large amount of rubbish which is generated by the people that attend. Having a strategy for removing and disposing of the trash is a key part of ensuring that your event is a success and that you do not get into trouble with the authorities who oversee the event licence. This article will provide you with some top tips which will help you to keep your event tidy and to dispose of the rubbish you collect.

Make sure you have adequate bins and skips

The primary thing you will need to do is to make sure that you have enough bins on site. If people do not have access to bins, they are likely to throw their trash on the ground. Not only will this make the event look messy, but it could also create a public health hazard. Collecting rubbish which has been thrown on the floor is also a very energy-intensive job when compared to sending a crew out to empty bins. It is a good idea to position the bins at key points such as near fast food stalls and at the entrances and exit points. For good measure, place bins along popular routes which the public will use to travel around your event. When the bins are emptied, the bags of trash will need to be transferred to a skip. It is always a good idea to consult with a garbage contractor who will be able to estimate the number of skips you will need to service your event. Factors which will impact the number of skips include the length of the event and the number of people who are expected to attend.

Encourage people to use the bins

It is all well and good positioning bins around your event. However, if people do not use them, all of your hard work will have been in vain. Clear signage should be put in place letting people know the location of each bin. Each sign should be as eye-catching as possible, using bright colours and oversized arrows. You can also encourage people to use bins by turning dumping your rubbish into a game. This is easily achieved by painting a large cartoon mouth around the top of each bin or by placing a hoop in front of the bin through which people can throw trash.
