New Policies

The Waste Wise Events and Healthy Choices Policies are now applicable to all Council run major events. See Frequently Asked Questions - Healthy Choices and Waste Wise Events Policies.

Waste Wise Events Policy

Frankston City Council has adopted a Waste Wise Events Policy (3MB) to help minimise waste and litter at our events. We can all reduce waste and litter by avoiding single use items (including all plastic bags, polystyrene food and beverage packaging) and balloons. See Waste Wise Events Flyer (98KB).

Healthy Choices Policy

Council is committed to enabling a healthy municipality where people thrive and have the best opportunity to make healthy food and beverage choices. The Healthy Choices Policy introduces a Council-wide healthy choices food and beverage standard to increase supply of healthier options at all Council settings, services, and programs. This includes all Council run major events where food and beverages are sold with the intention to be reasonably consumed on the event site. 

All exhibitors selling food and beverages are required to submit a FoodChecker menu assessment, from the Healthy Eating Advisory Service (HEAS) website. The PDF document provided from the menu assessment will provide you with a percentage of green, amber and red items, which will need to be added into the application. The expression of interest will only be considered for food and beverage exhibitors if a completed assessment is submitted.
