Each year, an excessive amount of camping equipment and food waste is left behind after the events.

The Reading-based 79th Scouts and Bright Green - a community recycling project - will help clear the festival site, reclaiming any usable equipment and redistributing it to local community groups.

Meanwhile, in Leeds, not for profit organisation Everything's Possible and Re-Work Office Furniture will do the same. 

Festival goers at both events will also be encouraged to donate unwanted, non-perishable food at Recycle Exchanges and dedicated donation points around the sites to be redistributed locally.
