Focus on your event, let us focus on your waste!
Our custom recycling bins and ambassadors will do all the work.
Conscious Cleanup ambassadors arrive at desired time to set up the diversion stations on location. Once the stations are set up the ambassadors will monitor and maintain them. They will assist staff & guests on which bins they should be throwing their recycled materials in. Ambassadors will empty bins when full and store them in the Conscious Cleanup vans until after the event. Once the event is over the ambassadors will take the recycled materials to the recycling facility where it will be processed and eventually made into new products. We will also provide you with diversion analytics so you can see how much waste your event diverted from the landfills.
Know Before You Throw
