Toward Zero Waste Events

JOIN THE BOW VALLEY’S TOWARD ZERO WASTE SPECIAL EVENTS PROGRAM!

Since 2008 BVWaste and our special event partners have applied TZW practices and tracked results for over 50 events and set out recycling equipment at many more. Bow Valley special events have sent almost 30 tonnes of recyclables to a better place for a 6 year average diversion from landfill of 80%. Many events are finding ways to reduce the overall amount of garbage and recyclables they produce. Give a smile and a cheer to the  event organizers and their volunteers who consistently step up and model responsible waste management in our community. They are all “ZERO HEROS“.
