Canterbury Folk Festival Goes 100% Waste Free

With the help of the group Transition to Less Waste the Canterbury Folk Festival is doing away with trash bins and will be 100% waste free

INGERSOLL - You won't find any trash bins at this year's Canterbury Folk Festival.

With the help of the group Transition to Less Waste, the amount of garbage at the festival has dramatically declined over the years. That being said, the festival decided to take that a step further, and make it completely waste free.

Mike Farlow, the president of Transition to Less Waste, tells Heart FM how they plan to make the festival 100% waste free this year.

"There will be no garbage pails. There will be recycling for everything - we'll have people at stations that will helps others know how to recycle. Instead of using styrofoam, paper plates, or plastic utensils we will use full plates, knives, forks, and cups that can be washed and reused."

Farlow says making the Festival waste free is only the first step of the journey.

"It's just the beginning of moving the county to zero waste and extending the landfill we have until 2100 and then closing it."

The festival is free to attend and will be taking place on July 8th, 9th and 10th this year.
