Recycling — Festival Volunteers

Welcome to the Buddhafield recycling crew

Each year we assemble a team of 24 people, who come together for 10 days to participate in an enhanced Buddhafield experience with a focus on community, team cooperation and recycling.

We arrive Sunday afternoon on the 12th July and leave Thursday morning on the 23th July.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are the days we build our base camp and glamorous recycle stations. It is an opportunity to be creatively engaged in the formation of the Buddhafield festival site.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the main festival days. Our mission is to collect the recycling twice a day and to do it as swiftly as we can!. This will be two hours in the morning and an hour in the afternoon.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are the days we celebrate our new friendships while we complete our mission of sorting, packing and transporting the recycling to the council depot.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided everyday along with unlimited tea, coffee, love and wellbeing.

Meditation and dharma input is available to all.

Crew wristbands, car park and live-in vehicle passes are all provided.

If you are an energetic, conscious eco-warrior, who doesn't mind getting your hands dirty, while mucking in as part of a team to get the job done, then we are the crew for you!.

Recycling volunteers need to be in good physical health. The activities involve lots of bending, lifting and walking, often energetically, and often carrying heavy bags.

  A Word about Alcohol and Drugs

Please have a think about our view on drink and drugs, as described on the Festival overview page.

We don’t wish to judge people’s views on this — and hope it won’t put you off applying! And if this would be a new way of experiencing a festival for you then why not give it a try?! However please bear in mind that if you choose to work with us, then we’d like this policy to be respected.
