The Way of the Waste Warrior
Why do we need to monitor waste stations?
Sometimes it can get confusing.... There are so many kinds of disposable containers, packaging, cups, compostables. And then the food waste...! What goes into each bin based on the multitude of possible materials that can be available at a single event, can be overwhelming in itself. Then throw this in amidst the fun, sounds, crowds of people, and variety of happenings at an event and you've got yourself a can of worms!
Monitoring stations helps attendees at ANY type of event (small or large) have a friendly helper to point them in the right direction.
The trainings we offer will build a caring crew of knowledgeable volunteers to assist event attendees with where to put their items.
If you're an enthusiast of reducing waste, this is the training for you!
