Zero Waste Stations, Dishes & Portable Dishwasher Trailer

By now you have likely seen our Zero Waste Stations, Dishes & Portable Dishwasher trailer in action at many of Powell River’s local events.

Zero Waste Stations

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

Dishes & Portable Dishwasher Trailer

Our community dish supply has real plates, bowls, mugs, glasses and utensils for up to 200+ people at once and has been used to host events with 1000+ guests when used in conjunction with the portable dishwasher.

Our portable dishwasher trailer hooks up to most vehicle hitches. It requires 220V electrical hookup (twist lock compatible), pressurized running water, vehicle with a hitch, and propane tank.  Grey water disposal is an asset but a transport tank is also available.

Please let us know if you have an event that you would like to borrow the Zero Waste Stations, community dish supply and/or portable dishwasher trailer 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 Zero Waste 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 Coordinators.  This comprehensive guide offers many tips and considerations for events of any size. Another helpful guide is our Zero Waste Guide for Food Vendors.  

The City of Victoria also put together this great guide for Zero Waste to-go packaging.
