As per By-Law S-600, the Solid Waste Resource Collection and Disposal By-Law, all events in the Halifax Regional Municipality must provide the necessary containers to allow for the proper separation of waste by visitors and staff at your event.
The Municipality does not supply garbage, organic or recycling containers or collection services for major special events.
It is the sole responsibility and cost of the Event Organizer to secure a contractor to supply properly signed garbage, organics, blue bag recyclables and fibre (paper/cardboard) recycling containers and collection services for these containers.
Halifax Solid Waste staff can be contacted for advice on ‘What Goes Where’, staff/volunteer training and suggestions on proper bin placement. Email WasteLess@halifax.ca.
When working with vendors it is important to let them know what is expected. They should know where their waste goes and how to sort it. It is a good idea to include this information (along with other 'greening' tips) in your vendor contract.
