Public and community events can create a lot of waste which often ends up in the landfill. Events offer a great opportunity to reduce waste going to landfill and to educate and support people to avoid or reduce the creation of waste.

Nelson City Council has a funding pool of $10,000 available to support the avoidance or reduction of waste at events. This funding is available in the form of small grants of up to $250, and applications are open until 30 June 2019 (unless the fund has been fully allocated prior to that date). Conditions apply.

If you have any queries please contact or visit our waste minimisation web page to download an application form.
