YOUR CAMPING ENVIRONMENT
Fairbridge Festival, Fairbridge Village, and the Alcoa Farm Manager are working together to ensure the camping areas and festival precinct are left free of rubbish when our lovely festival visitors go home. This means ALL rubbish and belongings including packaging, gas bottles, tents, chairs, sleeping bags, and tables. Of particular importance are the camping areas where the paddocks are used for grazing by animals. The smallest item, such as a bottle top, can cause internal injuries to livestock and native fauna. No butts about it! Please don’t leave cigarette butts on the ground – they take approximately 12 years to break down in the environment and are harmful to wildlife, as well as a potential fire hazard.
Please respect our historic festival site and leave no trace. Always use the waste and recycling bins – there are plenty around. Better still, remove all outside packaging from grocery and new camping items BEFORE you leave home, so you don’t have so many trips to the recycling stations. Please put non-recyclable rubbish in the bins provided – or take it home with you. Keep Australia Beautiful biodegradable bags are issued on arrival for your use. We continue to collect compostable waste which is processed on site at Fairbridge Village, so no transport is needed to take it offsite. This also means that Fairbridge Village can add to the compost site all year round, and the village gardeners can use the end product on the gardens. Your organic waste is enriching the very site of the festival! Together we can minimise our impact on this beautiful place; create a cleaner and greener festival; and sleep better, knowing the animals won’t be harmed by our actions.
Please be aware of the natural hazards of the environment on this rural site.
