Compost and Recyclables diverted to date
Founded in 2010, Green Gears is an owner-operated company that specializes in on-site responsible waste management (RWM) at events. Our mission is to educate the public on responsible waste management practices by actively diverting recyclable and compostable materials from landfills.
Our equipment is custom-made with efficiency in mind, as well as a highly visible platform for sponsors. We use a combination of zero-emission Cycles Maximus pedal-powered cargo bikes and lightweight Clearstream trash receptacles. Our system is less destructive on the terrain, more maneuverable, and safer for pedestrians.
Whether you want to improve your current waste management or implement a new "no waste" composting program, Green Gears will help reach your goals. Contracting Green Gears will assure a positive outcome and allow the production crew to focus their resources elsewhere.
Our services include:
- RWM (Responsible Waste Management) Consultation on "no waste" composting and recycling programs
- RWM Program Design & Development
- RWM Program Implementation & Execution
- Event RWM Set-Up, Maintenance, & Tear-Down
- Event trash, compost, & recycling pick-up & delivery coordination
- Hand sorting station to assure contamination levels don't exceed state guidelines
- Event Grounds Keeping
- Clean sweep of event footprint post production
- Recap & Diversion Report cataloguing recyclables and compostables diverted from landfill

We have worked with Paul and Mary Beth on several events and they continue to deliver top-notch turnkey grounds keeping services, effortlessly handling many unique removal needs and last-minute requests. The trash,recycling and composting receptacles are easy-to-find and we especially love the advertising points that perfectly complement our event signage and have even acted as a platform for sponsorship activations. The crew is friendly, professional, and efficient. We are always impressed by their ability to maintain a clean appearance of the event site, which is noticed not just by our staff, but by event attendees, vendors, and even the media. Green Gears is our number one choice for event grounds keeping, trash removal, and overall trash management.

Sponsorship and Greening Efforts
Our RWM program entices companies to invest in your event by providing them with ultimate platform for visibility and attendee interaction. Not only will your sponsor help to make your event possible, they'll help educate attendees on responsible disposal methods and encourage them to minimize their own carbon footprint. Attract sponsors with the ability to attach their brand to responsible waste education, landfill diversion, and carbon foot print reduction! At the conclusion of the event, we'll provide you with a full diversion report to send to your sponsor.
We can send you a custom sponsorship document to include in your sponsorship deck. To request one for your event, contact us here.
