Make your next event Waste Wise.Major events in NSW have reduced what goes to landfill by 75% through recycling cardboard, paper, food and drink containers, as well as composting. The Waste Wise event grants program is part of our commitment to support our community in our ongoing efforts to reduce what goes into landfill in the Bega Valley.

We have developed a toolkit provides practical solutions for event organisers and stall holders in the Bega Valley to be more Waste Wise, because we can have just as much fun without the mess! we aim to:

  • Minimise single-use waste
  • Reduce the amount of FOGO and recycling that goes to landfill
  • Minimise contamination of FOGO and recycling bins

Our star rating tools help you to assess your event before you apply online via the Festivals and Events Grant application. Once you have confirmed your star rating, simply apply for your Festivals and Events Grant and a Waste Wise Events Grant all in the one application.

In 2019/20 council has a limited budget of $30,000 towards Waste Wise Events. Money will be allocated according to your event star rating. As a result not all applications are guaranteed to receive funding. Funds are for Festivals and Events held between 1 July 2019 – 30 June 2020.
