Event Waste Disposal

Our Events Team operate throughout the year, including weekends, working with events of every size and type. We’re able to work in all sorts of conditions, to tight deadlines, can set up and move out quickly and are considerate of the surrounding area. We use our own fleet of hi-spec vehicles to offer a total event waste management service, including collection and recycling.

The North West is famed for its festivals and events, but the clean-up afterwards can be a daunting prospect without effective festival waste management plans in place.

Gaskells offer event waste management services that factor in the size and scale of your festival, with bin hire options to give you all the capacity you need, and regular waste removal from multi-day events.

  • The Anglesey Show
  • Liverpool International Horse Show
  • The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show in Cheshire

An appetite for event recycling services

Following any major festival, there is often outcry about the waste left behind, even before the planned clean-up operation has begun – but research shows there is an appetite for event recycling services among festival goers.

A Greener Festival, which works with event organisers to reduce the negative environmental impact of festivals, found that:

  • 71% of visitors agree festival waste has a negative environmental impact.
  • 81% agree that if recycling bins were available, they would separate their rubbish.
  • Current recycling rates among festival goers are around 30%.

Clearly there is room for improvement but with event waste management companies like Gaskells on your side, there is no reason why the balance shouldn’t tip towards higher recycling rates, and lower negative impact.

Some of the services we offer to festivals and events are:

  • Clearly signposted waste stations and containers
  • Waste disposal and recycling
  • Ongoing services throughout your event, including site sweeps and regular bin emptying.
  • Ro-Ro skip hire
  • Litter picking teams
  • Trade and catering waste services
  • Waste report to show your event has had a reduced environmental impact
  • We can also work with you to educate and inform people who are attending your event about the importance of sustainability.

What can festival recycling services achieve?

Festival recycling services can do more than you might expect. First of all, Gaskells can help you to plan your event better by conducting a free initial site audit that identifies the different types of mixed recycling and general waste your visitors are likely to produce.

Our wealth of experience in this area helps to take the guesswork out of planning your clean-up operation, and we can provide recycling bin hire for events so that your visitors have no excuse not to separate their recyclable waste and dispose of it in an environmentally friendly way.

We can collect and remove all kinds of general waste from your location while your festival is underway – reducing the amount of organic waste including food waste that is left sitting in bins around your site, and helping to maintain health and hygiene standards.

Our waste collection vehicles can weigh your waste materials at the time of collection, so you have full documentation of the total waste generated by your event, and a faster clean-up can mean you occupy the site for fewer days after the end of your festival.

Gaskells understand the ever growing emphasis on sustainability and recycling and will work towards making your festival as green as possible. We can provide an on-site segregation system by giving you different containers for different waste streams. All waste will be taken to our state of the art MRF in Liverpool where it’s separated further and sent on to be recycled. Waste which can’t be recycled will be sent to an Energy From Waste (EfW) incinerator which generates powers for homes across the county, and is yet another sustainable solution to waste disposal. As we’re a carbon neutral company, these measures will reduce your carbon footprint, along with lowering the cost of your waste disposal

Work with Gaskells on upcoming event waste planning

We are always happy to help when it comes to upcoming event waste planning, so that you know what your waste disposal strategy will be right from the start. 

This works as part of joined-up event planning, as you can then place recycling stations around your festival site and make sure guests have plenty of places to dispose of rubbish in the right way.

It also means we can make sure that we can provide a comprehensive festival waste removal schedule throughout your event, plus any additional services you need to remove excess waste at the end.

To speak to Gaskells about an initial site audit or any other early enquiries about upcoming festival waste disposal, email us at enquiries@gaskellswaste.co.uk or call us on 0345 305 2614 today.
