Smart Waste

Lets get smart about waste. The very idea of waste doesn’t exist in nature, and is an entirely human construct, which means that humans have the power to change it! As a society, we need to reimagine ‘waste’ and move towards resource reallocation.

At Native, we have spent many years working closely with waste hauliers, event cleaners, events and festival crew and stakeholders, and some of the greatest international leaders in taking a new look at how we create and dispose of ‘waste’. Our comprehensive waste reduction strategies and toolkits will help your event become truly clean and green!

Work with us to improve messaging, design, infrastructure, separation, recycling and communications. Together we can go from waste management nightmares, to smart waste success.

Material recovery

Anyone who works at events will have witnessed, first-hand, the shocking amount of waste that is produced. We have spoken to events and cultural sector workers across Ireland and based on this research, we know that this is a real pain point for the creative industry.

The principles of the circular economy tell us that we need to revolutionise the take-make-waste system. How we handle resources, how we make and use products, and what we do with the materials afterwards. By doing this, we can facilitate a thriving economy that can benefit everyone, within our planetary boundaries.

Our work in salvage operations and material recovery gives us the skills and tools to see the value of materials that might otherwise be destined for landfill or incineration. Instead we maintain materials and resources in the system for longer, giving them a new lease of life.
