rubbish room

A couple of exciting developments are happening for this year’s festival.

Firstly, to divert our recycling and composting waste from landfill we are instituting a system of staffed ‘Rubbish Rooms’ where festival patrons will be asked to deposit their waste / recycling / compostables into separate bins. This system has already been used successfully at the Blue Mountains Music Festival http://bmff.org.au/and the Winter Magic Festival www.wintermagic.com.au/

All food vendors have been asked to provide only compostable or recyclable packaging and utensils. No plastic will be allowed.
There will be no ordinary rubbish bins in the festival or camping grounds. There will be a special staffed Rubbish Room for campers.

Our second innovation is filtered water bubblers where patrons will be able to fill their own water bottles with crisp, clean, filtered Dorrigo water. We hope this will reduce the need to buy bottled water. We thank Bellingen Shire Council for this initiative.
