Zero Waste Events

What sets us apart from other food scrap haulers is the personalized service we provide. We offer zero waste event consulting, compost education, as well as event staffing. Our Zero Waste Consultants can help you manage the waste stream at any event, large or small. We will help you determine whether or not reusables or compostables are right for your event and, if you decide to go with disposables, we can help you decide which products are best for you.

We will deliver compost collection containers and then come back to pick up your food scraps and other compostable materials. If you choose to have us staff your event we will ensure the proper disposal of organic food waste, as well as all other waste, including recyclables. Our presence at your event allows us to educate guests about composting and waste reduction, so everyone can feel good about reducing landfill use.

Contact us to inquire about making your next event zero waste.
