Camping – Trash + Recycling Info

Let’s be friendly neighbors, especially when it comes to trash and recycling.

– Each campsite was issued one trash bag at check-in to help keep campsites clean during the festival.
– When you leave, throw your trash in the dumpsters by the entrances. Doing this is a huge help to our Green Team. We appreciate it so much!

– Look for the Lions Club stations on fest grounds and camping entrances for redeemable can recycling.
