The Festival is aiming to be a 5-star WasteWise event. Please sort all your rubbish before putting in the bins. To win 5-star accreditation we need to take NO WASTE to landfill.  We took just two small skips of single use plastic to the tip last year – if everyone washes their single use plastic (or takes it home) we might be able to return NO WASTE to the tip.  Please do all you can to help us achieve this.
