We all need to contribute to preventing and sorting waste at Roskilde Festival.
Roskilde Festival clearly expects all participants to regularly clean up and, most importantly, sort waste for recycling throughout the festival. This contributes to transforming heavy cans into new ones and recycling glass bottles into new bottles.
We are currently working on implementing new waste solutions to make it easier to sort correctly. You will hear more about this in the spring.
It is a common misconception that camping equipment and belongings left in camping areas are collected for recycling. Roskilde Festival is making efforts to ensure that abandoned but usable items are reused, but it is crucial that you also contribute. This can be done by either taking your equipment, items, and belongings home for reuse or by delivering usable equipment to one of our sorting stations.
If you have questions about waste and sorting upon arrival at the site, you can contact one of the camping hosts in your area.
