Events Generate a lot of waste. DIG is an environmental services company that specializes in special events and festivals.
We save our clients time and money, keep their sites clean, improve their environmental reputation, and engage audiences through fun and unique activations.
We are a social enterprise, which means we are structured in a way that keeps us focused on our community and environmental commitments. At least 1% of all our gross revenue goes to charitable causes. But make no mistake, we are just as focused on bringing economic value to our clients and the local economy, while paying our staff a fair living wage.
We started out as long time volunteer managers for the Calgary Folk Music Festival’s multiple award-winning environment program. In 2013, after the flood hit Calgary, we launched DIG at the 35,000 person Alberta Flood Aid Concert at McMahon stadium, where we managed all the recycling and composting.
Since then, we have increased our environmental services and formed lasting partnerships with some of the biggest event organizers in Alberta including the Calgary Stampede, Beakerhead and 24 Hours of Adrenaline.
