Zero Waste Event Productions is the leading recycling, composting, and waste management provider for indoor and outdoor live music events, sporting events, community gatherings and conferences.

Our team provides the experience, equipment, and dedication to service that will leave you with a clean, comfortable venue from start to finish—and a lower environmental impact!

Our Services

Recycling and Composting

Our Resource Recovery Stations include recycling, compost, and landfill bins, with helpful signage so event attendees know where to put their waste. With the ability to set up over 50 stations for big events, we ensure a bin will never be out of reach.

Waste Sorting and Hauling

Throughout your event, we sort each bag to ensure as much waste is being diverted from the landfill as possible. Then we support you to contract with local compost and recycling centers to remove the waste from your venue.

Volunteer Management

We train and manage festival volunteers to assist with the waste collection and diversion process. Volunteers love working on the Zero Waste team and come away with a real understanding of what we throw out and what can be diverted.

Zero Waste Education

We believe in the zero waste movement, and want to get that message to as many people as possible. With clear signage, volunteer education, and a highly visible operation, we help guests come away from your event with a better understanding of how and why to reduce and recycle waste.

Vendor Contracts

We can work with your event's food vendors to purchase and use compostable serviceware. We have developed sample language to add to your vendor contracts. This simple change can have a drastic effect on your waste diversion percentage.

Final Cleanup and Report

We can continue working after your event is finished to ensure no waste is left behind. Within two weeks, we provide you with a final Diversion Report showing how much waste your event produced, how much was diverted, and ways to improve next year.

It is important for us to get to know you and your event. Please click below to get a quote and we will get back to you shortly to talk about how we can ensure your event is clean, comfortable, and low-impact!

Waste Diversion

Since Zero Waste Event Productions began in 2011, we have collected more than 50 tons of waste. Of that total, we have been able to divert about 79%, or about 40 tons, from the landfill through recycling and composting. Getting to zero waste is a journey—events that have worked with us for multiple years in a row have achieved zero waste by continually improving from year to year. We're shooting for 90% or more at every event—work with us to be a part of the journey to zero waste!
