Burner express trash program

Post by pens » Mon Jul 25, 2016 12:57 am

Hi all,

Anybody knows how trash handling works if you go by burner express?
On the website is a FAQ that says:
Q. What about trash?

A. Once you purchase a Burner Express Bus ticket, you will receive information about the trash and recycling program. Plan to reduce your amount of waste as much as possible and follow the Leave No Trace principle. All of Burning Man’s 10 Principles can be found here.
But i haven't received any information yet...

Hugs!

When you board the bus they give you two bags, one is for recyclables and one is for landfill garbage. When you come back to take the bus out there are dumpsters available to take these bags which will haul your trash for you. Bags are decent size and should be plenty for a week but follow general LNT advice for best result- remove/minimize all packaging when packing, recycle your cans, burn clean cardboard, etc.

You can recycle cans at the recycle camp near center camp during the event.

Hope that helps!

Yes, thank you! I've been wondering myself.
