Tips for making Hamline Midway Coaliton sponsored events zero-waste.
1. Rethink and Reduce-only bring what is needed at the event and rethink what you are planning on bringing to aim to make it reusable, recyclable, or compostable (in that order).
2. Reuse-design any event materials (outreach or other) to be reusable.
3. Recycle-recycling containers will be available to use onsite. We will be able to recycle the following materials onsite: Paper and cardboard, plastic bottles with a #1 or #2, glass bottles and jars, milk cartons and juice boxes, alumni cans, foil, and trays, and tin cans.
4. Compost-containers to collect compost will be onsite. We will be able to compact any food (including meat and dairy), non recyclable paper (such as paper plates, napkins, and cups), and biodegradable plastics that are certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPIworld.org)
