We’ve developed these guidelines to help staff and event managers find sustainable alternatives to single-use items and maximise recycling.

The guidelines apply to services, events, festivals, markets and programs delivered by the City of Sydney and other entities that hire venues or seek a permit to use outdoor venues.
