Recycling Efforts

Recycling will always be our most important sustainability initiative but we cannot reach our goals without YOUR help. To help reduce environmental waste and decrease the amount of trash entering our landfills, recycling bins will be placed all around the festival grounds to ensure one is always in plain sight.  Volunteers will be on site to help guide your efforts and assist where needed.


Hydration  Stations

We encourage all festival goers to bring a factory sealed water bottle or an empty reusable bottle to refill at our hydration stations around the site; just look for Water Station Flags. This will not only lessen our overall carbon footprint by reducing plastic waste, but will help you keep you hydrated all day long.
