Waste Bins for Events

Many of Council's facilities have bins located within the area. However these bins are for use by regular patrons and will not be suitable for events.

If you are holding an event you will be required to order bins to ensure that all waste generated by the event can be removed. You can use the table below to determine how many bins you will require.

NB: Fines will be issued to any organisation that does not remove all waste generated by the event.

You may also wish to ensure that the waste generated by your event is reduced by having recycling bins on site. If so you will need to demonstrate that you have a plan for managing waste on the day to ensure contamination does not occur. If you wish to have recycling bins at your event you can discuss this with Council's Waste team on 4654 7777 prior to submitting your event application.
