Event Waste Collection

About our service

When it comes to the organisation of special events such as university balls, festivals, county fairs and other one-off occasions, we know that waste management requires a great deal of forward planning and organisation to execute. 

Not thinking ahead about event waste collection and removal can lead to logistical problems, not to mention it can hamper the enjoyment of guests and event staff. At Oxford Direct Services, we are able to provide specialist disposal services to effectively manage waste and recycling generated by vendors and guests. 

Why choose us? 

Our comprehensive event waste management enables us to provide you with everything you need prior to, during, and throughout clean-up and tear-down of the event.  

We have fully trained and skilled staff available, as well as heavy duty bins and sacks available for hire. We understand how important the correct segregation of waste is, and so we offer everything you need to ensure waste and recycling is being placed in the right containers. 

What happens to the waste? 

We take steps to efficiently dispose of waste and recycle wherever possible. This means utilising a number of different partnerships: 

  • Food waste is sent for anaerobic digestion 
  • Glass is sent to be melted down and used in new bottles and jars 
  • Paper is pulped and recycled in future paper products 
  • Metals and plastics are melted down and repurposed as materials for new products
