‘Turning local waste into a local resource’
In order to support and sustain our community transport services, and demonstrate our commitment to the environment, LWCT diversified to provide these event recycling services. We’re a Social Enterprise Company, and profits generated from the Events Recycling goes to support our Community Transport operation and the other Community Projects we organise to benefit the social and economic wellbeing of residents in Llanwrtyd Wells and surrounding areas.
We can provide help with pre-event planning, environmental policies, waste audits, advice on waste minimisation, event resource management, recycling bins for hire and we can supply volunteers. Please call us to discuss your next event.
Public events often create a huge amount of waste. Country shows, street carnivals, music festivals, in fact any event when people come together produces a significant amount of waste in a variety of materials; these materials can be a valuable resource when recycled.
Encouraging recycling activity at events not only preserves natural resources and saves on landfill charges, but can also improve the public’s opinion of the event organiser. It will promote a positive environmental image and present organisers as responsible and respectful event managers.
We currently use the five bin recycling system which has helped us to achieve excellent recycling results over the past years. In spring 2012 we managed a recycling rate of 73.9% at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society Spring Festival. That equates to only 27% of waste ending up in landfill. In 2015, over 100,000 people received the recycling message at the events we serviced. We covered some very high profile events including the Spring Festival and Winter Fair at the Royal Welsh Showground. These two events attracted over 55,000 people, which produces a lot of waste! We were able to capture over 70% of waste for recycling.
If you would like us to help you achieve such a high recycling figure at your event, please contact us now to discuss the possibilities.
Whatever your needs we can create a package exclusively for you, so why not give us a call.
