Finally , we want to thank all of you for doing such a fine job last year on our War on Waste. We are proud to report the Waste audit completed the day following the festival confirmed the partnership with Mid Waste and sponsorship from J R Richards assisted the festival to reduce the amount of discarded items sent to landfill from 100% in 2016 to 51 % in 2017.
So 49% of waste was successfully diverted to recycling or to a local vermiculturalist, where worms break the green waste back to soil. The soil has now been placed with the Manning Valley Neighbourhood Services community garden for their vegetable beds to grow lush veges for our salads next year ! Our Aim is waste free by 2020!
