ASB Polyfest Green Project Stallholder Information
Rubbish, litter and waste have a large negative impact on the environment.
The ASB Polyfest organising committee is committed to reducing waste so we are encouraging stallholders and the community to reduce the amount of waste we use and recycle whenever possible.
What does that mean to Stallholders?
The ASB Polyfest Green Project will involve the use of the principle “3- R’s of waste minimisation – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”.
• Reduce packaging to a few materials which are recyclable
• Collect and sort recyclable materials
• Prevent litter
What are the benefits for the Stallholder?
• Decreased cost by reducing types of packaging and minimising rubbish collection
• Allowing for creativity around packaging
• Promoting a cultural presentation to your stall
• Increased competitive edge
What should I do as a Stallholder?
You can help reduce litter and waste by:
• Avoiding unnecessary packaging
• Reusing items where possible
• Use packaging that can be recycled
• Use packaging that is made from recycled material
• Control the spread of litter by having rubbish bins at your stall
Recycling stations with bins will be located at a number of locations around the festival, especially near food areas. These are for use by patrons only. Stallholder’s waste materials including flattened cardboard boxes should be placed at the site designated by the festival Operations Manager. No waxed boxes please as they cannot be recycled.
Grey water disposal
Grey water is waste water generated from activities such as dish washing, laundry and other domestic activities. In addition to the “3-R’s of waste minimisation – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” we will also be providing receptacles to dispose of grey water in the following areas:
1. In between B1 and N1 stalls
2. Cook Island stage area
3. Maori stage area
4. Tonga stage area
These areas will be well signposted and will assist us in working towards sustainability and a greener event.
