How do we set up garbage collection and recycling service for the event?

Place litter receptacles and recycling bins in high traffic areas, near food and beverage vending areas, restrooms, and at entry and exit points. A recycling bin should be placed next to each litter receptacle to ensure recyclables are not tossed in the trash. Recycling bins should be clearly marked to help prevent them from being used for trash. The Loudoun County Waste Management Division within the Department of General Services has Clear Stream" recycling bins available for loan on a first-come, first-served basis. Find out more event planning tips from the Waste Management Division.

Additional information including providers of waste collection / recycling services, vendors of recycling bins and litter receptacles, and local recycling drop-off center locations is also available by calling 703-777-0187.
