About Waste Wise Events

The Waste Wise Events (WWE) program promotes recycling, waste reduction, and the elimination of litter at public events throughout the Midlands. Groups may borrow trash and recycling containers (with bags) and ash receptacles for cigarette butts from Keep the Midlands Beautiful (KMB) to use at special events. 


How Do I Obtain Recycling and Trash Containers and/or Ash Receptacles?

1. Complete the Agreement Form.


2. Submit it online or print it and return it to KMB by mail or E-mail.

  • Mail to:

Keep the Midlands Beautiful

1305 Augusta Rd.

West Columbia, SC 29169


3. Make arrangements to pick up the materials from KMB's office in West Columbia.  (See address above.)  


4. Complete the online Report Card following the event.


5. Return all borrowed containers to KMB's office within the week after the event.


KMB strongly recommends that you "twin the bins".  The twin bin system is a process of setting up a recycling container next to a trash receptacle in order to separate wastes.

The individual or organization borrowing the bins is responsible for transportation and disposal of recyclables and trash.
