Zero Waste Event Planning


Ever hold employee or community events?  Ohio EPA’s Division of Environmental and Financial Assistance (DEFA) developed this guide to help event planners reduce waste through recycling, composting and source minimization.  This general resource guide that can be applied to a wide variety of small and large events, held at inside or outside venues. A zero waste event minimizes the amount of waste going to a landfill by diverting materials for re-use, recycling or composting.  An event is typically considered to be zero waste if at least 90% of the waste generated is diverted.  11/10/2016
