As part of council's commitment to environmental sustainability, all events held on council owned or managed land are required to meet a minimum Star 1 Waste Wise rating. Events that are Waste Wise support recycling and minimise waste sent to landfill.

1 star rating - The minimum requirement that ensures events offer effective recycling facilities and maintain a litter-free environment.

2 star rating - Requires events to achieve recycling and contamination targets, work to reduce food and packaging waste while eliminating two single-use plastic items.

3 star rating - In addition to achieving recycling and contamination targets, events also must provide free water refills, separate organic waste collection and eliminate all single-use plastic items.
