We recycled an incredible 68% of our waste in 2017, so thank you for everyone who used the recycling points in the campsites and the three bin system in the Main Arena.
THREE BIN SYSTEM
We run a three-bin system at the festival, which means every bin station in the campsite and main arena will be formed by 3 bins:
COMPOST – When you buy food from the traders, everything your food comes in is compostable so plates, cutlery and napkins can be placed in the compost bins along with the food scraps. Please make sure NO PLASTIC goes into the compost.
RECYCLE – Plastic bottles, aluminium cans, newspapers, magazines and clean and dry cardboard (no used greasy pizza boxes as these do not recycle).
GENERAL WASTE – There should be minimal left over that goes into General Waste.
FESTIVAL GREEN MACHINE
Green Machine’s ethos is simple, “To contribute to sustainability and minimize landfill at all events whilst giving accessibility and equality to disabled and disadvantaged people”. Green Machine provide us with hard working and fun volunteers who support our sustainability team in reducing waste and spreading the message to the public about recycling at our music festivals.
BIN YOUR BUTTS
Every butt has to be picked up by hand, so it would be awesome if you did not flick your cigarette and put it out before you bin it.
