BAY DREAMS 2020

SUSTAINABLE WASTE MANAGEMENT

Bay Dreams is one of New Zealand’s most popular Summer music festivals, with over 50,000 music lovers attending two events.

Closed Loop Site Services is the Sustainability Partner for Bay Dreams, managing the waste across events in Mount Maunganui (North Island) and Nelson (South Island). The goal for the events in January 2020 was to increase landfill diversion to over 60%.

Across the 2 events, 74.5% of all waste materials were recycled, totalling 383.37 cubic meters of resources diverted from landfill.

BAY DREAMS INTRODUCED HYDRATION STATIONS FOR REFILLING REUSABLE WATER BOTTLES

“Closed Loop have become a proud sustainability partner and key service provider for Bay Dreams and One Love. 

 

The team at Closed Loop go above and beyond to ensure they are getting the highest diversion rates from landfill as possible. 

 

The practices and systems they put in place on our event sites, such as hand sorting and decontaminating waste streams, as well as controlling waste inputs and educating stall holders and contractors really makes sure we can reach our sustainability goals.

 

Bay Dreams has already come a long way. Our aim for 2020 was to increase our diversions to over 60%. Closed Loop helped us not only reach that goal, but smash it. At Bay Dreams North we reached a diversion of 77.9% and saved 286 cubic meters of waste from landfill. In 2021 we aim to increase this to over 80% and are well on track to achieve this.

 

We recommend Closed Loop for your event so you can have the confidence to aim high, and reach your sustainability goals with confidence.”
