SUSTAINABLE WASTE MANAGEMENT

BAY DREAMS is one of New Zealand’s most popular Summer music festivals. 2021 marked an extra special event, with New Zealand having the biggest summer festivals in the world. The sold out Mount Maunganui show marked a stunning start to the new year. With international acts gracing the stage as well as many home grown favourites.

CLOSED LOOP SITE SERVICES is the Sustainability Partner for Bay Dreams and this year we managed the waste for the Mount Maunganui event.

 

Throughout the day a total of 142 cubic metres of waste was collected. The waste was hand sorted on site into ten different waste streams, with 115 cubic metres diverted from landfill - either recycled, composted or upcycled.

 

This produced a diversion rate of 81%.

“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.”
