The Bin Skins Are In

Posted on

Down To Earth Events' Bin SkinsWe are pleased to introduce our new bin skins!

Made from shower-proof nylon these 240L bin covers provide endless uses at events and festivals.

Designed for events that use only compostable tableware they are available for rental for $7 per cover.

We attach two A5 signs (see pictured) to ensure that as much packaging waste is diverted from landfill and makes it to the compost as possible.

We also hire a team of "bin buddies" to assist in educating people on where their waste goes.

For more information on this service take a look at at our wholesale site: downtoearthevents.com.au

We have 36 of the bin skins available - that's 12 general waste, 12 refundables and 12 compostables.

Make your next event a Down To Earth Event and ensure that all the food and drink packaging waste is diverted from landfill and the environment and goes to a compost facility.
