Compost Bins

We use a 64 gallon brown wheeled cart for the collection of food and compostable materials. In areas, where there is a large amount of material, we also use a frontloader dumpster with a compostable label on it. These bins are emptied into our Organics collection truck and hauled to an off-campus compost facility.

Zero Waste Recycling and Trash set for Events

A Zero Waste Recycling and Trash set gives you one recycling and one landfill trash bin.  Order this set when the event primarily have drinks served in recyclable containers, but no food at your event. 

Each of our 32 gallon event recycling bins, holds either 120 aluminum cans or 100 plastic water bottles. To determine how many recycling bins you need, consider the number of people that you expect multiplied by the number of drinks a person will consume during your event and then strategize how to place the sets at your event.

Recycling bins must be ordered in the same number as trash bins so they can be placed side by side at your event.
