Council encourages the organisers of special events to consider the volume and type of waste that will be generated by their event.
Waste Receptacles are available for hire from Council for a small charge per receptacle. This hire fee covers the use of the receptacle and the costs of servicing. Organisers are required to collect and return the Special Event Receptacles to the Dungog Waste facility in Short Street Dungog.
Special Events Receptacles are provided with prominent red and yellow Hi-Top Bin Caps to encourage recycling as shown in the photo below.
If you are organising an event, please contact Council’s Environmental Services Department to discuss your waste collection needs. You may also contact Council’s Economic Development and Tourism Officer to discuss subsidies that may be applied for waste collection for certain events.
The attached application form must be completed where special Event receptacles are required.
