Zero Waste Stations

By now you have likely seen our Zero Waste Stations in action at many of Powell River’s local events.

Rather than put items into the trash, these stations encourage folks to separate their ‘waste’ into the local recycling streams available in Powell River in addition to food scraps/compost collection.

Please let us know if you have an event that you would like to borrow the Zero Waste Stations for by contacting us at  We will happily guide you along the way to achieving Zero Waste at your event.  Check out the Zero Waste Sign Out to see what is available for FREE use.  A damage deposit is required.-3

It’s always a great idea to have volunteers monitoring your stations and assisting the public in making the right bin choice Zero Waste Crew hats and aprons are available to keep them looking sharp.  Interested in volunteering an hour of your time to help for future Zero Waste Events?  We are always looking for station monitors.  Send us an email and we will connect you with event coordinators in need of your assistance.

To help you get started, check out our Zero Waste Guide for Event Planners.  This comprehensive guide offers many tips and considerations for events of any size. Other helpful guides include the Zero Waste Guide for Event Coordinators and the Zero Waste Guide for Food Vendors
