Trafalgar Park diverts nearly 90% of event waste from landfill

The Netsky event held at Trafalgar Park showed festival-goers know how to have a good time as well as care for the environment with nearly 90% of event waste diverted from landfill.

Community Leisure Management Trafalgar Centre Manager Mark Mekalick, who leads the team responsible for managing the venue for Nelson City Council, says the results show people want to do the right thing when it comes to recycling.   

“People are really good at choosing to recycle or compost when they have those options,” says Mark.

“By being mindful about the products sold on site, we’re able to sort waste after events and ensure the vast majority is recycled or composted. I think we can continue to divert even more waste from landfill for future events.”
