Clean Up Report 2023: A Remarkable Success

The rhythm of the music has faded, the last notes of laughter have subsided, and the vibrant energy of the Burning Mountain Festival has left a lasting imprint on our hearts. As we reflect on the magic of the event, it's equally important to celebrate the dedication of the unsung heroes who ensured that the festival grounds remained a pristine haven for all to enjoy. The Clean Up Report for 2023 reveals a remarkable tale of environmental responsibility and collective effort that truly embodies the spirit of Burning Mountain.

Total Garbage Collected: 13.8 Tons

Yes, you read that right – a whopping 13.8 tons of waste were collected and managed with meticulous care. It's an astonishing number, but it's also a testament to the festival-goers' commitment to keeping our environment clean and vibrant. This incredible amount might seem daunting, but it's a reminder that we can make a real difference when we come together. (by the way, the average European produces about 1kg of waste each day whereas on the festival, it was only slightly more than half that amount - so... chapeau)

Recyclable Treasures: From Aluminium to Steel

But wait, there's more to the story than just waste. Among the vast quantities of waste collected, there's a glimmer of hope in the form of recyclable materials. The festival attendees and the event organizers collectively contributed to the collection of over 730kg of recyclable aluminium, 690kg of recyclable plastics, 950kg of recyclable carton, and a staggering ton of recyclable steel (mostly of cheap chinese pavillons wich only last one festival sadly). These materials are now given a new lease on life, thanks to your efforts.

Enter the PsyClean Crew: Guardians of the Environment

Behind these awe-inspiring numbers, lies the true heroes of the event – the PsyClean crew. These dedicated individuals worked tirelessly throughout the festival, ensuring that the festival grounds remained clean and free from litter. From picking up stray cups to carefully sorting recyclables, their dedication was unwavering. They not only protected the natural beauty of the surroundings but also set an example for all of us to follow. Their commitment and passion for a greener future deserve a standing ovation.

Separating the Good from the Rest

The PsyClean crew didn't just stop at collecting waste; they went the extra mile by meticulously sorting recyclable materials. Their efforts have significantly reduced the impact of the festival on our environment. By segregating aluminium, plastics, carton, and steel, they've given these materials a chance to be repurposed into something useful once again. Their actions have shown us that responsible waste management is within our reach, and that every small action adds up to make a significant impact.

In conclusion, the Clean Up Report for the 2023 Burning Mountain Festival is a testament to what can be achieved when individuals, communities, and the event organizers unite for a common cause. The remarkable numbers – 13.8 tons of waste, recyclable treasures, and the dedication of the PsyClean crew – paint a picture of hope and possibility. As we bid farewell to another incredible edition of the festival, let's carry this spirit of environmental responsibility with us, making every day a festival of caring for our planet.
