In early 2020 we switched the lighting at our 210 Wicksteed location to high efficiency, LED lights. This change is expected to eliminate hundreds of thousands of KWH’s of demand over the course of a single year.
Event Rental Group endeavors to sell or donate used equipment rather than throwing away. In addition, we have our own in-house repair shop and paint shop which helps to extend the life of rental items. We also will cut down worn wooden tables into smaller sizes to divert as much waste from landfills as possible.
We have constructed protective packaging for some of our more fragile items in the form of wood boxes, while the may be a bit bulky and heavy they have a long shelf life thereby reducing the need to replace them often, the material is recyclable and prolongs the life of our identified fragile equipment (silver chafing dishes, samovars etc.).
Event Rental Group stocks numerous “green” products such as soya candles and “Green Shift” paper products for those clients that have an increased awareness of environmental sustainability.
Event Rental Group has a paper, wood, and metal recycling program. Recycling bins are provided and services by Miller Waste Systems.
Our Administration and Customer Service staff strive to conserve ink and paper unnecessarily consumed by printing. Most work is communicated via email allowing many transactions to be processed electronically, saving both paper and time.
Event Rental Group wish is to be a good neighbour and partner within the communities we serve, and we are proud to continue to find ways in our responsibility to be as sustainable as possible.
