Event Recycling “Kit” for Local Festivals and Activities
If you would like to use this trailer and recycling bins for your upcoming event, then complete the reservation request form below.
The purpose of this program is to provide recycling equipment, supplies, and information to local special events and festivals to assist in achieving the State of Alabama’s goal of recycling 25% of the solid waste generated. Funding to create this kit was provided through the ADEM Alabama Recycling Fund in partnership with the Jefferson County Department of Health.
This Event Recycling Kit is available on a first-come, first-served basis. A rental fee will be assessed based on the size of your event. We recommend one bin for every 20 people. For ideas on how to reduce waste at your event, a brief guide is available here.
To check event recycling bin availability, please complete and submit the form below. A staff member from the Alabama Environmental Council will confirm availability and provide complete instructions on how to incorporate recycling into your event, how many volunteers you will need, what to do with the recycling once its collected, and how to maximize recycling at your event.
