Leave no trace

We challenge ourselves to camp as consciously as possible on the land and leave the venue without a trace of us being there.
Please do not put any nails in the trees !  Before leaving the venue you must do a thorough check for anything that you, or others may have left lying around.

With regards Waste, the aim is to have as little as possible that ends up as landfill – (rubbish that has to get buried in dumps on our precious Earth)

The Clan VIllage has a central recycling station facilitated by our amazing Waste-ED crew who make it possible for us to deal responsibly with the masses of waste generated by so many people.

  1. Try to keep packaging to a minimum when planning and packing for your trip.
  2. All campsites must have 3 buckets for waste separation. Compost, Recycling, non-recycling.
  3. Once your buckets are full, head on over to the lively depot where we sort  waste into what is useful, what can go to a recycling centre and compost to be buried

 

Compost

Food waste will be composted, this includes bones, citrus and left over cooked food. Compost can be put into a container with a lid in your kitchen area ( bring an old ice cream container or bucket. )

Recycling

Dry and clean recyclable stuff will be recycled if not used as a resource at the Festival.  Items such as clean hard plastics, glass, cardboard, paper and metal. These recyclables will be taken to the Riviersonderend Recycling depot.

Non-recyclables

Items that cannot be recycled, need to be turned into a resource otherwise they go to landfill. We can stuff these cleaned bits and pieces into a plastic bottle to be used as a well insulated solid building brick. These bricks will contribute to a build, to showcase cob building with waste materials.
