Reduce the amount of waste generated at your event and make recycling easy for all. A little forward planning and clever bin placement can really help.
Event sustainability guidelines
Every year, Brisbane City Council helps to deliver markets, festivals and events which enrich Brisbane's cultural, and social life, attract visitors, businesses and new residents.
Council has developed guidelines to help event organisers incorporate sustainable principles into their events. Every event is different and each presents different opportunities for improved sustainability. It won’t all be achieved in one go, but every change is a step in the right direction.
Use these guidelines to enhance the environmental outcomes for your event.
