Mangere East Xmas Festival

How we did:

1 Reduce incoming waste

We asked vendors to use compostable packaging and advised them on how to source it.

2 Choose the right bin

Talking Rubbish made provisions for an increasing amount of recycling and composting, while still ensuring there were enough bins for reducing the amount of rubbish produced at the event.

3 Let people know

MC announcements were used during the event and bin stations were actively monitored by staff and/or volunteers.

4 Capture feedback

At the 2015 Christmas festival, 80% of waste was composted or recycled.
