The sun is set to shine for the lucky festival goers at T in the Park this weekend!
As much as we love music and soaking up the atmosphere at festivals, we cannot help but think of all the rubbish which will be left behind at T.
With over 85, 000 fans flocking through the gates over the weekend – just think of the amount of plastic cups and tents that will be left behind.
There’s been some great initiatives set up to cut down on waste at music festivals. For example – at this years Glastonbury, Latitude and Wychwood festivals, tents were collected, cleaned and completely transformed into sustainable wrapping paper – clever recycling!
What a great idea to not only cut down on waste, but to also reuse dis guarded tents which would otherwise have gone into a landfill site.
Do you know about Zero Waste?
Zero waste is a main focus for Spectrum and the whole of Scotland. Below is a little more information about zero waste and what it means for businesses in Scotland.
If you run a business in Scotland, you are already legally responsible for safely disposing of any waste your business produces, however did you know that from 1st January 2014, the law will require your business to take all reasonable steps to recycle as much of that waste as possible?
The Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 were passed by the Scottish Parliament on 9th May 2012, and they aim to help Scotland become one of the most resource efficient nations in Europe.
The regulations make the following provisions which you can read more about by clicking HERE.
