When planning a large outdoor event, having a large amount of space to carry on fun events like dancing and dining is exciting. From holiday festivals to weddings, using the natural backdrop of nature is a memorable moment in your life. But once the festivities have ended and the dancing has stopped, the mess and waste left behind is also something you won’t ever forget either.
Large spaces can be difficult to manage trash effectively, especially when guests and party-goers are roaming everywhere. Check out our complete guide to helping you manage large amounts of waste your outdoor event will probably generate.
One of the most straightforward ways to control the amount of trash and waste generated at your large event is to limit what can be brought onto the grounds, and what will be available. Doing this gives you a head start at managing garbage. An example would be not allowing guests to bring their own drinks, which can cut down on glass bottles and plastic bottles eating up your trash bin spaces.
One great way to make clean-up easier, and worth your time, is setting up bins to segregate trash. You can designate garbage cans for certain types of waste, like recyclables and non-recyclables. Having guests due this ahead of time, though not all will follow along, will make your after party cleanup efforts go more smoothly.
Renting a dumpster to streamline waste efforts is also a smart decision when planning your outdoor event. If you want patrons and event attendees from leaving trash in random places or on the ground, simply having a large bin or two in strategic areas by food vendors or restrooms can help speed up litter cleanup later.
While not always possible on some event grounds, if you can restrict the areas your guests can roam, you will have an easier time of cleaning up garbage later. The amount of trash generated by your festivities may not seem like much but clean up efforts can take a longer time than desired when spread across a wide event area.
Regardless if your event is ticketed, by invite, or open to the public, being prepared for the significant waste left behind should be part of your planning. You can’t account for every piece of trash that will end up directly on the ground, but you can have waste management options in place to minimize it all. Dumpsters are a great option that most organizers use along with segregated recycling bins to help achieve maximum control over the amount of garbage generated.
