Borrowing Event Waste Minimisation Resources

As part of the Rethink Waste Whakaarohia programme we will be trialling a free loan service of event waste minimisation resources for six months from October 2022 to April 2023.

These resources are suitable for small to medium size events and are available on a first-come-first-served basis (conditions of use apply). The resources are managed by Waste No More and are available for events taking place in the Nelson region. The following items are available to book:

  • Rethink Waste Flags
  • Fill your bottle here flags
  • Public waste bin covers
  • Waste grabbers
  • Recycling crates
  • Waste, Recycling, Compost triangular bin lids for 240L wheely bins
  • Signage for bin stations

Please note that these resources do not include wheely bins or waste/recycling services, which should be organised with your waste service provider.
