As Christchurch's Event Waste Sorting Specialists, we are a one stop solution for sustainable events with specialist equipment and processes to maximise landfill diversion.
Sustainably is always looking for new developments in the field of waste collection and waste separation. Knowing that every event is unique with a diverse audience we can deliver tailor-made products and services and discuss options with you in order to arrive at targeted ideas and possibilities that fully meet your needs.
Preferred Waste Sorting Provider
As a Sustainability Partner and the preferred waste provider for Christchurch City Council events, we’re experts at handling the complexities around dealing with rubbish at semi-permanent sites.
Because each event is unique, our pitch is planned around your event. We take into account the amount of rubbish expected and calculate not just the number of skips but the types of bins, the places you’ll need them and how the rubbish will be removed.
Depending on the size of your event we may recommend setting up a ‘sorting yard’ where sorting can occur.
Waste Collection Products
We offer you a total package in the field of waste management. As Sustainably is a subsidiary of Total Waste Solutions we work with our own people, own supplies and own transport, so that we can offer optimal flexibility and tailored solutions.
How Event Waste Sorting Works
We distinguish three phases for waste sorting at your event:
- During your event
- After your event
Before the start of your event, our team place all necessary collection means, such as skips and wheelie bins, over the entire event site, and set up the sorting area.
During the event
Our service teams ensure that all collection resources are emptied regularly to ensure maximum availability. Our team monitor bins encouraging visitors to separate waste in a positive and accessible way. We take the collected waste to our sorting area. The service teams keep the event area as clean as possible; the less waste on the ground, the more visitors keep 'their' premises clean.
After the event
We clean the location immediately after your event. The final delivery takes place in accordance with our schedule and we check this together with the customer.
Composting Food Packaging at Events (CFPE)
Initiative & Fundraising
This Christchurch City Council initiative involves diverting waste away from landfill, by working with food vendors to move to using compostable food packaging.
Our fundraising groups hand sort waste into various streams, sending a large portion of this waste to Living Earth, to then be made into organic compost.
