The Community Event Tote Program was created to provide an opportunity for not-for-profit organizations and schools to educate the community about proper waste separation practices. To ensure that events can properly separate and reduce waste, each Community Event will have access to up to four sets of recycling, organics, refundables and garbage totes. To learn more about what is accepted in the program and what to do with confusing items, see our Program Guide.

When booking a set of totes, a deposit fee of $200 must be collected prior to the event. This deposit will be used to cover fees associated with garbage ($164/tonne) and organics ($125/tonne) disposal. It may also be used to cover processing contaminated materials, and unclean or damaged totes.
