Towards Zero Waste
 
The term zero waste should be looked at as mind set and a goal to strive for, rather than an absolute. Through up stream waste reduction, onsite recycling, composting and post event donations, events are able to minimize and divert significant amounts of materials that would otherwise be sent to the landfill.  
 
Typically, events that implement a zero waste plan have landfill diversion rates (ie: resource recovery rate or recycling rate) that are much higher than those that conduct waste management or recycling as usual.
