What You Need To Know

State law and CSWD’s Solid Waste Management CSWD Ordinance require that Blue-Bin Recycling and food scraps must not be put in the trash. All lonely trash containers must also be paired with a recycling container buddy, and event venues must include language in their reservation forms to notify event organizers about CSWD’s requirements and resources.

Let us help you navigate these requirements by not only ensuring your legal compliance, but also providing:

  • Signs and labels
  • Staff/volunteer training
  • Waste Warriors volunteers
  • And more!

Deploy a CSWD Waste Warrior at Your Event!

Waste Warriors are CSWD-trained volunteers who help event attendees sort their discarded materials correctly, teach event attendees about recycling and composting, and help reduce contamination in event waste streams.

Benefits of Enlisting Waste Warriors At Your Event

  • Show your guests that you are committed to ensuring resources aren’t wasted in the landfill.
  • Reduce contamination of recycling and compost streams.
  • Help ensure your event complies with State and CSWD waste management requirements.
