Event Bin Lids & Signage

In December of 2011, the ACT Government introduced a new program to encourage recycling and reduce waste to landfill. This program is designed to help event organisers implement recycling facilities within a public event and provide the public the opportunity to recycle within that event. This program is open to any event in the ACT and enables community and corporate events the free use of signage and event bin lids to encourage recycling and reduce event costs.
