Are you part of a Zero Waste Event? Review the Zero Waste Guidelines for exhibitors and food vendors. 

The Zero Waste Special Event Program currently contracts with local large-scale festivals and smaller private events to maximize the amount of materials composted, recycled, or reused at an event- while minimizing the overall trash (to landfill) produced. Event services included in the event fee(s) are variable per event type, but typically include: rental of Zero Waste disposal stations, disposal of event waste, volunteer/vendor coordination, staff on-site, and pre-event consulting.

If possible, it is highy recommended to contact us at least 3 months prior to your event to secure a pre-event quote and services. The ability to host your event is fully dependent upon available rental stations, staff, and volunteers for your needed date and time.

As of 2015, we have partnered with Washtenaw County to form Zero Waste Washtenaw.  Review our "How-to Guide to Achieve Zero Waste at Your Event (PDF)" by working with us!

Some of our ongoing event partnerships are with: the City of Ann Arbor's Earth Day Festival, City of Ann Arbor's Mayor's Green Fair, Cobblestone Farm Market, Leslie Science and Nature Center, Lawton Elementary, and Rudolf Steiner Schools.
