SFCC Zero Waste Events Team

The San Francisco Conservation Corps has coordinated and managed event recycling for more than fifteen years. They offer efficient, customer-friendly services to ensure that your event leaves the smallest footprint possible.

Zero Waste = The Best Choice

The SFCC Zero Waste Events Team develops a plan for your event, provides recycling and compostable services,
consults on waste diversion plans, monitors and provides bins, educates attendees, and takes all the recyclables and compostables away, all for one very low price. On average, Corpsmembers will divert anywhere from thousands of pounds to 10 tons of waste. In the past year, we have diverted high volumes of waste at dozens of events.

Examples include:

  • Green Festival, Concourse Exhibition Center (97% Diversion)
  • Slow Food Nation, Civic Center (95% Diversion)
  • Oyster Festival, Great Meadows (92% Diversion)

When you retain SFCC for your next event, they provide the bins, manage the recycling throughout your event and haul away the recyclables and compostables. They can handle any type of event – concerts, festivals, street fairs, and business event – and any size event, from a few hundred to thousands. And using our Zero Waste Events Team not only shows customers and the public that you care about being green, SFCC can also save you money. SFCC’s trained Corpsmembers and staff help control discards so you stick to your plan – and your budget.
