Every sports event leaves behind large amounts of waste. Most of this waste is produced by the visitors, but kitchens and kiosks, the tournament organization and media centres also end up filling rubbish bins. Proper waste management is a core concern of every sports event since cleanliness is considered the most obvious hallmark of a well-functioning environmental policy.

But what is the best way to approach the “waste challenge”? When organizing and executing an event, a key factor is to apply well-known, time-tested measures for waste prevention in a targeted manner. Establishing such a concept at an early stage in the organizational process creates a solid foundation on which large amounts of waste can be prevented from accruing in the first place. To enable successful waste utilization and recycling, collected waste at the event should be sorted.
