Are you planning an event?
Festivals and parties can be a lot of fun, but they also make a lot of waste! Let us help you reduce the environmental impact of your event with our portable event recycling bins! Our event recycling bins collapse for easy transport to and from your event. We provide the bins, bags and signs, you fill them with recyclables! When the party is over bring the bins and recyclables to the Otter Tail County Recycling Facility. The bins are free to use – so there really is no excuse to not recycle at your next big event! We also have an Event Recycling Trailer for larger events.
Portable Recycling Bins are Perfect for:
- Family Reunions
- Sporting Events
- Street Fairs
- Graduation Parties
To reserve recycling bins or the Event Recycling Trailer for your event, call the Solid Waste office, email the PIEO or fill out this Event Recycling Request. Pick up your bins at the Recycling Center in Fergus Falls during business hours.
Managing Recycling at your Event
Recycling at an event will go smoothly if you plan ahead. Read through the OTC Event Recycling Guide, and follow up with the Solid Waste Department if you have questions about setting up your bins or running your event.
Think through the following before your event:
- Who will set up and manage recycling at your event?
- Will you need to empty the containers during the event?
- Could you offer free admission to volunteers who help with recycling?
- Where will bins need to be placed? Identify high-traffic areas, and areas near food and beverage vendors. NEVER place a recycling bin by itself, it will be used as a garbage can.
- How will you inform event attendees that recycling is available?
Do you have larger amounts of recycling?
Do you have a large amount of cardboard at your job site or public event? Are you hosting a community event and would like to provide recycling? Is your business planning an event and needs a bin for one material such as glass to be recycled?
Call the Solid Waste Office to reserve a FREE on-site dumpster for short term use. A 12 yard or 3 yard dumpster can be delivered to your site. The bin can be serviced free of charge multiple times while on-site. Let us help you recycle more with this convenient recycling option for larger events!
