Cosmic Roots Festival in Norfolk, UK, operates a reusable cup scheme and needed help with managing the on-site waste. A waste sorting line ensures we achieved maximum capture rates on-site. The Rubbish Project also provided training and management to the team of volunteers who were helping during the event with both litter picking and operating the sorting line.
Two types of bins were used on the site, general waste, and recycling. These were signposted with clearly communicated directions to promote correct bin use. This was broadly very successful, with minimal sorting required.
The Rubbish Project will create a more detailed blog post soon going over the details of the event, how we captured, sorted, and recycled the material and what we thought of the reusable scheme – so keep an eye out for that. The Rubbish team is excited to go back next time as cosmic roots continues to grow. Cosmic roots tickets were available here
