Keeping it Green

Three bin system

We run a three-bin system at the festival, which means every bin station will be formed by 3 bins:

Compost – When you buy food from the traders at Community Festival, everything your food comes in is compostable so plates, cutlery and napkins can be placed in the compost bins along with the food scraps.  Please make sure NO PLASTIC goes into the compost.

Recycle – Plastic bottles, aluminium cans, newspapers, magazines and clean and dry cardboard (no used greasy pizza boxes as these do not recycle).

General Waste – There should be minimal left over that goes into General Waste.

Bin your butts
Every butt has to be picked up by hand, so please use the bins provided.

Cup And Bottle Deposits

Every bar cup and all plastic bottle that you purchase at Community will have a returnable deposit of 10p.  There is a dedicated return point marked next to the bar closest to the main entrance (marked on the site map) where you can redeem your deposit.  10 items for £1.  A full recycling bag of bottles for £5.

Water

Water is free. Please feel free to refill your water bottle at the taps provided.
