The contracted Sustainable Event Services Program (SES) Program provider, Action Rent-All will work with your event to determine what dishware is a good fit for your food service needs.
Public events anticipating over 250 attendees or more, and that are held within Lane County, are eligible for the program. Dishware and other equipment must be reserved at least three weeks in advance by contacting Action Rent-All & Events at 541-726-6517.
The SES Program replaces disposable plates and utensils with cost-effective, durable, and reusable plates, bowls, cups, and silverware and provides sanitized water refilling stations. After eating at their chosen food vendor, event goers return dishes at established bussing/drop-off stations that have been identified during the event planning phase.
Action Rent-All collects the dirty dishware from the drop off stations and transports them back to their industrial, state-of-the-art washing facility for washing and sterilization, all for less than the cost of providing disposable food service ware.

ALL DISHWARE IS:
• Secure, sturdy, and stackable
• Made in the USA
A $25 per dishware type, per day cost is assessed for dishes. This includes delivery, pickup and sanitation services, payable directly to Action Rent-All. An additional $50 fee for late/early delivery and/or pickup per day also applies.
For example, for a two day event:
• Delivery of between 250-1,000 plates would cost event organizers $25 for each of the two days the items were used.
• Delivery of between 250-1,000 forks would be an additional $25 per day.
• If delivery/collection service outside of normal contractor operating hours is required before the event opens on day one, and after the event closes on day two, an additional $50 per delivery/ collection fee would be applied per day.
In this scenario, the total cost to the event producer would be $200.
Water bottle refilling stations help reduce event waste. Disposable plastic water bottles are a source of waste across the United States and only a fraction of these bottles are ever recycled---leading to substantial impacts on our rivers, oceans, and landfills.
Eugene’s water refilling stations have already helped reduce numbers of discarded single use bottles at local events, and including water refilling stations highlights the importance of our local water resources while ensuring access to clean drinking water for all attendees.
Each basin style water station connects to a municipal water source using a standard garden hose fitting. The stations each have six bottle filler taps that dispense water on demand for event attendees.
The Sustainable Events Services Program is affordable, requires minimal staff training and can be implemented quickly. Dishware and water stations are available on a first-come, first-served basis and must be booked at least three weeks in advance of your event.
