The Garden of Unearthly Delights:
Mad March is well and truly underway in Adelaide with the Fringe in full swing. One of the major attractions for the Fringe is the Garden of Unearthly Delights.
Jeffries have been working with Veolia to service The Garden of Unearthly Delights for 2 years now and each year their sustainability efforts get stronger and stronger. A leap this year was to remove general waste bins for patrons. Focusing on recycling at all streams.
The 3 options for patrons are:
- 10c Cans and Bottles
- Co-mingled Recyclables
- Organics Recycling
This means that every stream is recycled leaving minimal options for landfill!
What’s the difference?
Traditionally at large events, vendors often use single use plastic cups, cutlery, trays and plates, which just isn’t acceptable anymore. However Veolia has coordinated with the event organisers of The Garden of Unearthly Delights to ensure that vendors are all using Certified Compostable food packaging including compostable bowls, plates, trays and cutlery, compostable cups, straws and paper serviettes. This has helped to eliminate single-use plastics, and also helped to minimise confusion between what can go in the organics bin
No confusion = no bin contamination
