Large events can attract thousands of people, especially if done right. And, let’s face it, that amount of people can create quite a mess. Whether the event is a charity race, a music festival, a sporting event or a trade show, all you need is a little pre-planning and coordination so that the clean up doesn’t have to be overwhelming.
Here are some things you need to consider when organizing a large-scale event:
Traffic. If your event is going to draw a large crowd, you’ll have to allocate a good amount of parking for attendees and staff. You don’t want parking to be a deterrent. If you’re not able to secure adequate parking nearly, consider renting busses to shuttle people to and from the event.
Bathrooms. Where there are people with food and drinks, there should be restrooms. And enough to go around. How do you determine that? You need to take into consideration the number of people you’re expecting; the length of the event; and other contributing factors like time of day and alcohol consumption.
Trash. No doubt about it, there will be plenty of trash. If you’re organizing an outdoor event on city streets, the city you’re working with may have specific requirements as to how many trash receptacles you need. For clean up purposes, it’s always better to have more than not enough. Cardboard trash bins and recycling bins are easy to construct, and you can coordinate delivery through a local waste management company like ours.
