Waste Wise Events

Crowds at Lake Weeroona during summer

Waste wise, plastic-free events

The City of Greater Bendigo has introduced a Waste Wise Events Single-Use Plastics Elimination Policy to reduce the amount of material sent to landfill from events. The policy is also a way to inform and educate stakeholders and the public about single-use plastic, the impact that it has, and the way in which it can be reduced and avoided.

We're strongly committed to reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill and are working to achieve this through educational campaigns and events, and by introducing policies like this one.

The policy will assist in driving change by encouraging event holders and the community to think about waste generation, where these materials end up and how the transition can be made to avoid, reduce and encourage reusable options.

Read our eliminate single-use plastics guide for event holders and food vendors and Waste Wise Single-Use Plastic Policy. 

Event holders and food vendors are encouraged to use our signage to promote their commitment to being single-use plastic free.
