State Assembly Bill 2176 requires special event coordinators to submit a Waste Management Plan for collecting recyclable materials generated from events if the event serves an average of more than 2000 individuals and charges an admission. The Plan is part of the City’s Special Event Permit Application and must include: primary contact information, types and amounts of waste generated and information on the recycling service or business. Event Planners may coordinate with the City’s Solid Waste Division or a private recycling company for assistance in developing the Plan.
It is helpful to have a good strategy when planning out the details for a special event. The City has provided a resource guide for developing some best management practices for waste handling that can optimize your event!
