  • Food Concessionaire

    Waste Reduction Initiative

    Country Celebration is striving to become a Zero Waste event and a leader in waste reduction. Our success is dependent on concessionaire cooperation and participation. We will support concessionaires in any way feasible, including providing information on composting and recycling, a supplier list for recyclable or biodegradable content products, and on-site recycling and composting containers.

    As part of Metro Vancouver’s Tap Water Campaign, we will again be providing complimentary tap water for drinking. Sale of bottled water will not be allowed.

    Incentives

    Metro Vancouver is offering a reduction in the commission percentage as incentive to aid the transition of food concessionaires towards Zero Waste.

    For more information on how to participate in the Zero Waste program, review the food concessionaire application or contact:
