Public conveniences
 The number of toilets required will depend on the number of people expected to attend
your event, based on the British Standard. Note; the table below shows a general
guideline for an event over a 6 hour period. These figures may be too high for short
duration, non peak period events such as community events and garden parties, or too
low for events with high levels of fluid consumption.
Female conveniences, 1toilet per 100 females
Male conveniences,
1 toilet per 100 males, plus 1 urinal per 150 males
1 toilet for every additional 600 males plus 1urinal per 175 males.
When siting toilets remember to make them accessible and allow room for queues.
Cleaning and emptying the toilets is also a vital consideration, and is lighting if you are
planning an evening event.
Please submit details of your proposals to include method of disposal and if toilets are
hired, the name and address of the hire company.
If you wish to use the Public Toilets please complete the request form included
within the pack.


Public Toilets supplied by Torbay Council are not guaranteed and arrangements
should be confirmed at least 6 weeks prior to the event. (A charge will be
applicable for additional operating hours). These fees will apply from the published
operating times.
For full details go to www.torbay.gov.uk/index/living/publictoilets.htm
Recycling and Waste at events in Torbay
If you are organising any event, you, as the organiser must comply with national waste
legislation. It is important to plan ahead to make it as ‘green’ as possible by managing
it sustainably. You will need to complete a waste management plan.
www.torbay.gov.uk/events
Torbay Council and our partners Tor2 will therefore supply a basic package which will
cover your minimum requirements for waste and recycling (enclosed sheet). Thi s will
be at a cost of £50 per event and will be deducted from the £200.00 deposit. This is
mandatory for all events held on Council Land. Any additional containers or collection
must be arranged directly with Tor2.
The definition of ‘WASTE’ is any rubbish and/or litter produced by the event that
you are organising.
Planning your event
All waste produced at an event is subject to strict legislation/regulation. When
organising an event you must ensure that all litter and rubbish (known as ‘waste’) is
removed from your designated event area when it has finished. By law you cannot
simply put some black bags into the back of a van and take them home to go out with
your general rubbish. This is illegal.
6 weeks prior to the event you must consider the following:





Who is going to collect what materials and how they will recycle as much of it as
possible. If you are inviting traders/concessions, ensure that they know about
recycling and litter arrangements. If you are inviting food and drink vendors then
your agreement with them might include them taking their own waste away for
disposal.
Torbay Council’s partner, Tor2 offers waste and recycling services for events. If
you use another waste company, they must be registered with the Environment
Agency and you must have a Duty of Care notice (see attached information
sheet) from them detailing where the waste and recycling is processed.
Think about placing containers near places where people are going to throw
things away, ensuring recycling bins are next to litter bins, label properly and
get the right number of bins for the size of event.
Larger bins for storing the waste must be sited in an area that is not accessible
by the general public but easily accessible for a refuse collection vehicle to
empty them without having to drive over grass.
Publicise what you are doing to recycle so that people are aware about the
recycling facilities. Use the registration/ entrance point as an opportunity to let
people know.
Cut down your waste in the first place
There are lots of things people can do to get towards making their event almost waste free.







Only allow concessions that use recyclable, compostable or reusable cups,
plates and utensils to trade at your event;
Start by using recycled products, like toilet roll, pencils vending cups and paper;
Serve condiments, like sauces, in bulk rather than individual servings;
Reducing printing for advertising the event through using e-newsletters and
local websites. If you need to use paper, make sure you use both sides;
On stationary, use white boards rather than flipcharts, reuse name badges and
for signage, avoid putting the date on if possible so they can be reused;
Avoid plastic bags.
Please identify any other additional method to be used in order to remove and maintain
the area free of litter and refuse: This will include you providing a litter/waste plan for
your event.
Note:

It is the event organiser’s responsibility to arrange removal of all rubbish from
the site The event organiser should ensure that the site is regularly litter-picked
during the event and at the end of each day to ensure that the council's
obligations under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 - Code of Practice on
Litter and Refuse is discharged. If this has not been completed to the
satisfaction of the Council, it shall be lawful for the Council to do such work as
deemed necessary and recover the costs thereof from the hirer.


disposal or remove the waste from site as you do not have a waste
transfer licence.
