Equipment hire

From street parties to hui, fundraisers to sports tournaments, we have zero waste equipment for community groups and individuals to hire, whatever the event.

Wash Against Waste

Banish disposable cups and plates from your event by hiring our reusable crockery and cutlery. You can rent as many or as few place settings as your event numbers require, along with wash tubs, brushes, aprons and tea towels.

We have dinner plates, side plates, bowls, coffee cups, forks, knives, tablespoons and teaspoons. Maximum numbers of each item vary, but if you require a complete setting, including one of each item for your guests, we can cater for up to 25 full settings.

Please complete this form to ask about renting Wash Against Waste gear.

Rent A Bin

To help your guests separate their waste for more sustainable disposal, you can hire up to three sets of three clearly labelled bins and a stand. These bins make it easy to collect recyclables, food scraps and landfill waste.

Rent A Bin zero waste equipment to hire

There are three sets of three bins plus one stand (one set pictured above) available to rent.

You can hire as few or as many as your event will require. You will need to dispose of all waste collected yourself and return the bins to us clean.
