The Big Feastival is an organic farm when the festival is not on. We look to build upon these credentials by improving our site-wide recycling and environmental impact each year. We work closely with our Waste Management providers to achieve this. Since 2017, Big Feastival has diverted all rubbish from landfill and we consistently strive to continue to do so.
All waste from Big Feastival is collated and separated (sometimes back of house where you do not see this) into the following waste streams:
- General waste (suitable for incineration at an Energy from Waste plant)
- Bulk general waste (unsuitable for incineration)
- Mixed Recycling
- Cans and Bottles
- Food Waste
In order to assist our cleansing teams we kindly ask all our visitors, guests, contractors and traders to carefully consider how they dispose of their waste, to ensure the correct recycling points are used and ensure they don't leave anything behind, as well as not bring any glass onto the farm. Please remember this maybe your home for the weekend, but it’s also home for a number of animals for the rest of the year.
