Hi all

I am currently looking for examples of waste diversion activities in north America and Europe. There appears to be a trend (may be a small trend not sure yet)for event organisers to provide one waste stream and then have the waste segregated at a recycling facility. This means that all waste at an event would be placed in the one bin. This is not the trend of Waste Wise events (government certified events) here in Australia but it is happening at some large events, which would be inconsistent with domestic recycling. Welcome your thoughts and direct egs. Of good event practices as I am currently compiling a strategic plan for the sector on behalf of a government.

Thank you
Monica
