The 2017 Glasto Clean Up began before anyone even left
For a number of years, it’s now been the normality for some to just dump all their stuff and leave without a thought.
The festivals mantra as been ‘Love the Farm, Leave No Trace’, but for some, this just doesn’t sink in.
With the rain I thought I would have a look at the BBC Webcam and see how it’s affecting breakdown of things.
I got a shock.
While not looking as bad as previous years, clearly again people think it’s acceptable to just leave everything behind. It’s not fair on those who remain on site to clear up, it’s not fair on the animals as it delays them getting back to where they belong, it’s just wrong.
These are the images from near the Other Stage
You can clearly see tents have been dumped
However, litter pickers have even been out today, in the rain!
So many out in the Pyramid field, and I thought it was clear already.
Now other tasks can begin, like recycling sorting.
Thousands of tons of rubbish will be sorted for recycling over the next few weeks.
We’ll post info on how to volunteer for the 2019 Litter Pick Team when it’s made available
