What is a Near-Zero Waste Event?

Compost Crusader, LLC can help provide insights/consulting services for managing the waste produced while hosting festivals and events. While fun, these events can produce a lot of waste. We will help your community group or organization successfully plan and execute a low or zero waste event. Whether it is a block party, wedding, or fundraising event, we are here to work with any indoor or outdoor venue in planning and implementing your recycling efforts. It doesn’t if this is your first time including diversion goals into your event or if you are a pro. Compost Crusader can create a customized plan that works best for you and your budget.


Before the Event

Before the event we will set waste diversion goals and logistically plan and implement a waste diversion plan that will help to minimize landfill waste. We will outline the placement of receptacles while also training staff and providing assistance.


During the Event

During the event we will help with replacing full bags/receptacles, while also assisting the public in their disposal of waste.


After the Event

We will provide collection and disposal of all organic waste and assist in event cleanup.
