This impactful program links volunteers to waste diversion projects in the City, resulting in meaningful, measurable benefits to improve the health of the environment. Since our agency's inception in 2009, we have provided our Event Greening services to a whopping 45 events, resulting in an estimated 60,900 kg (60.9 tonnes), of waste diverted from the landfill.
To create a cleaner, greener, more environmentally responsible community, we all need to work together – citizens, businesses, schools, governments, and event planners.
Our popular Event Greening Service invites community volunteers to join us in helping event & festival planners go green.

Our popular 3-step service:
PLANNING FOR SUCCESS
A pre-event meeting with our Event Greening Co-ordinator will identify practical solutions to reduce your event’s environmental impact (such as food & serving supply considerations, energy use, eco-friendly promotional options, transit ideas and more). Our program can be customized to suit your needs.
GREEN TEAM IN ACTION
Adorning BurlingtonGreen T-shirts, our enthusiastic green team will handle your event’s waste sorting needs ensuring waste, organics and recyclables are collected and properly sorted, resulting in minimal waste going to the landfill.
Our team will provide you with a post-event audit report summarizing your event greening results, along with recommendations to further green your next event. And, to recognize your valued efforts to host a green event, you will receive a BG Green Event certificate that you can display with pride!
The fees for this service vary depending on the scale of the event you are hosting.
Collected fees support the important work of BurlingtonGreen to create
a healthier, more environmentally responsible city for all of us.
