Spring is here, and so planning for the summer festival season begins! Glastonbury, the mother of all festivals in the UK welcomes c. 200,000 revellers each year with thousands of events on this scale occurring across the USA and European countries.
The clean-up effort for the waste generated at a typical festival of Glastonbury’s magnitude will take more than 1000 volunteers at a cost approaching $1 million dollars. Waste disposal can take in excess of six weeks to complete. In this way, ensuring this process as efficient as possible is important to reducing costs and environmental impact.
